This review summarizes the impact of organic food on human and animal health. The role of organic food consumption in reducing allergies and, obesity and the general overall healthy lifestyle of all. Animal experiments have also suggested that composed feed that is organic impacts majorly on growth and development. In organic culture, the use of pesticides is drastically reduced which also increases the cognitive levels of generations to come. The long-term goal of developing sustainable food systems is considered a high priority in the present generation.

Maltitol is a corn-derived sugar alcohol that is 90% as sweet as sugar. It is used in many sugar-free, low-calorie, and diabetic products. Chemical-free maltitol besides adding sweetness in place of sugar helps keep food moist and help prevent browning. The fact that maltitol doesn’t cause cavities or tooth decay makes it a very useful ingredient in gum, mouth wash, and toothpaste. Erythritol is another sugar alcohol that is considered the healthiest option which doesn’t cause a spike in sugar levels and also helps the digestive tract to remain clear. It is naturally occurring and is made from corn using enzymes and fermentation and is also found in some fruits and fermented foods which makes it an ideal chemical-free option for sugar. Crystalline Fructose, the crystalline form of fructose, a food additive made from corn or sugar (sugar cane), is commonly used as a nutritive sweetener in foods and beverages. Due to its high sweetness among natural sugars, low Glycemic index, and low calories, crystalline fructose is used commonly in health food and again a dental safe option. Mannitol is another chemical-free sweetener that is very helpful to decrease pressure in the eyes.
Prions also leads in the manufacture of Glutamine which is an amino acid and a building block for proteins. Its uses are very critical like it is taken by mouth for sickle cell disease, to improve nutrition and help people recover from surgery, injuries, burns, bone marrow transplant, complications of HIV/AIDS, radiation, and cancer chemotherapy, and for many other uses. Other sugar alcohols that are commonly found in some food products include Trehalose, Polydextrose, and liquid glucose, and lactose which is only found in milk. Xanthan Gum has also gained significant importance as it is a popular additive to thicken and stabilize and made when sugar is fermented by certain bacteria.
A few worth mentioning enzymes like the nattokinase which is extracted from a Japanese food called natto. Again the corn steep liquor is a recent development and has immense power to impact the organic plant growth market. Manufacturers and wholesalers in bio-processes have come up with so many organic options which have led to an increase in healthy and reusable global feed.
