Hi all,

 

I will be moving back the Thailand this summer and was wondering about the availability of organic food and more so, organic meat. Is it possible to buy organic food in Bangkok.

 

Any information would appreciated.

Organic food is not any more nutritious than non-organic and it does not taste any better. Don't see why anyone would spend extra money on it. Maybe if your whole diet was organic to avoid chemicals, but don't want to be restricted to only organic and doubt if there are significant health benefits unless super-strict about it and maybe not then.

Ulysses interesting points. However, I see organic food as being 'less bad' as opposed to being so much better for you. I just want less chemicals and rubbish in my food/meat.

Organic food absolutely, 100% tastes better. This is especially very obvious with dairy and chicken products.

 

I am not buying or particularly obsessed with organic food, but I do notice significant difference.

Organic food does not taste better. It is all in the mind.

 

Is organic food tastier? No, it's all in the mind: 'Moral satisfaction' of eating items produced in an ethical way means you're more likely to enjoy it 

  • Supporters of ethically produced food appear to have skewed judgement
  • In flavour tests many people convince themselves organic tastes better 
  • 'Moral satisfaction’ associated with consuming food produced in an ethical way means people are more likely to enjoy it

I don't think it tastes better to be honest. But I think it's better for you in regards to not having antibiotics and added chemicals to it (organic meat that is).

Things do not taste better for being organic. But organic food is often also free-range or grown in a natural environment, or grown more slowly due to the lack of added hormones, and all those factors can make it taste better.
