What this label means 

How meaningful is this label? 

Highly Meaningful.

The standards are comprehensive and take into account various aspects of sustainable agriculture, including soil fertility, animal welfare, reliance on natural methods of pest management rather than chemical pesticides, and biodiversity preservation. The standards also cover food processing to prevent highly processed foods and prohibit artificial processing aids and ingredients.

A biodynamic product must meet all the requirements of a certified organic product in addition to the more rigorous biodynamic requirements. The Demeter Biodynamic standards are more restrictive; certain inputs and practices that are allowed by certified organic standards are prohibited by biodynamic standards.
