By picking up a food labelled "organic" you might assume you're taking a positive step towards a more nutritious and healthy diet.
Indeed, an Organic Market report by the Soil Association revealed that annual spending on organic food, cosmetics and clothes is £2bn, and that health is the prime motivation for buying organic.
But while the sustainable farming methods used to produce organic foods make them kinder to the environment, they are not necessarily kinder to your health or waistline. In fact, many products carrying the organic label are packed full of fat, sugar and salt and are no better than regular varieties of the same food.
A recent report highlighted the confusion surrounding organic food labels designed to woo health-conscious shoppers.
