Organic strawberries are healthier than conventional!

Many people buy organic foods because they believe organic foods have higher nutritional values than their non-organic counterparts. Researchers at Washington State University wanted to find out if these consumer beliefs were accurate. They tested both organic and conventional strawberries grown in 13 side-by-side California fields.

Here are a few of their findings:
- The organic strawberries had significantly higher antioxidant activity and concentrations of ascorbic acid and phenolic compounds.

- The organic strawberries had longer shelf life.

- The organic strawberries had more dry matter, or, "more strawberry in the strawberry."
