What does BIO mean in relation to food?


Maybe many of you aren’t sure what BIO supermarkets are and how they are beneficial to you. First, we want to inform you on what bio means and what are the advantages to changing your grocery shopping lifestyle. BIO products are grown and/or raised following the rules of the EU regulation on organic farming. All this means is that the food items you’re buying are organic but also with a few more benefits. When you’re shopping around Madrid and see the bio label on any packaged processed food it means that 95% of the ingredients come from organic farming. If you want to research further into the difference in regulations between the United States and Europe you can do so here.
