Look at the label.
There are degrees of organic, how ever, so look closely at the front of the package. All-organic whole foods, such as produce or unprocessed meat. may display the "USDA Organic" logo and a "100% Organic" claim. Processed foods containing at least 95 percent organic ingredients also can claim "USDA Organic," whereas products with 70 percent or more organic can just say "Made with Organic Ingredients." Lesser percentages can list organic only along with other ingredients on the side panel.
