Organic by Peter Laufer

Part food narrative, part investigation, part adventure story, Organic is an eye-opening and entertaining look into the anything-goes world behind the organic label. It is also a wake-up call about the dubious origins of food labeled organic. After eating some suspect organic walnuts that supposedly were produced in Kazakhstan, veteran journalist Peter Laufer chooses a few items from his home pantry and traces their origins  back to their source. Along the way he learns how easily we are tricked into taking “organic” claims at face value. Read a free excerpt below!
