The organic balsamic vinegar is an interesting theme which is not always faced. Organic is a new concept and a new vision of the food which is spreading in our reality faster and faster, respecting the nature and the process of production, thanks to which the consumer is more careful and alert in what he is going to buy and then eat.
Few decades ago it was not possible to define an agriculture with the appellative of “organic”. First of all, what exactly does “organic” mean? This statement underlies the application of a production method – organic farming – strictly regulated by EC Regulations n. 834/07 and 889/08. Since 1 July 2010, the new “Euro-leaf” logo is affixed to all EU organic food packaging. Next to it (optional for imported products), it will be possible to play other private, local or national logos. There are also other associations, especially in Italy, which certify at 100% the quality and the origin of the product, taking care of the health of the consumer and also the status of the lands from which the raw materials are obtained. One of them is Bioesperti.it, which deals with this problematic.
It is difficult to talk about organic balsamic vinegar: if the product is aged for 25 years, it is hard to find a true balsamic vinegar certified organic, because few decades ago the biological certificate did not exist, even if the agriculture was more focused on a not mass production. Indeed, it could be defined as organic but it cannot reach the official status. On the other hand, it is possible to find the true organic balsamic vinegar original from 8 years of aging. Indeed, I suggest you to trust only the certified products with the logo on them, because nowadays it is easy to find not real organic products on the shelves of the supermarket.
L’originale, offers his “Aceto Balsamico PGI” aged 8 years, who come with the ICEA organic certification. Take a look!
