The State of Baden-Württemberg has conducted a federal-wide, unique monitoring program of organically produced foods since 2002. Over the last 10 years about 8,000 organically-labeled food products were analyzed in a vast array of parameters (e.g. pesticide residues, genetically modified organisms and additives). While at the beginning unprocessed foods were the main focus, with the ever growing selection of organic products, processed products such as wine and bread were increasingly included. The brochure provides an overview how the inspection system for organic products works and a comparison of organically and conventionally produced products.
