Earthbound Farm Organic Peaches are a good source of vitamin C, which promotes wound healing, supports a healthy immune system, and helps keep skin healthy.
Peaches are well-known for their fuzzy skin, which (along with the flesh) contains good amounts of antioxidants, including beta-carotene, which converts to vitamin A in the body when needed. Within the context of a healthy diet, these antioxidants may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.
Try adding peaches to a spinach salad, or eat them with other produce that contains iron; the vitamin C in peaches helps the body absorb the iron found in plants.
Why choose organic peaches?
Peaches are #5 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead.
At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic peaches without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic peaches taste better, too!
WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for fruit like peaches and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
