Organic products are in high demand in Kolkata
Spend whatever amount you may, but the rice you buy from the market will have some amount of pesticide in it. The two types of rice polished and super-polished go through multiple levels of refinement with chemicals and pesticide. On the one hand, the process drains nutritional value from the grains and on the other, pesticides and chemicals do what they usually do harm the body in every possible way. A third category, however, is fast gaining popularity. Organic rice, free of artificial food additives, has come as a boon. Similarly, organic vegetables considered healthier than conventionally grown counterparts are not only in high demand but also sold regularly in five markets in and around Kolkata, including Behala Senhaati, Naktala Udayan Sangha and Garia chalpatti.
