Living in an era where health and fitness is all the rage, many of us are becoming more mindful of the source and type of food we eat. After all, haven’t we heard of the saying “You are what you eat.”? We may have heard of organic food and know of it as a generally healthier option, but what does “organic” actually mean? Organic crops are grown in safe soil with no synthetic pesticides, genetically modified organisms, petroleum-based fertilizers and sewage sludge-based fertilizers. Organic livestock are raised outdoors with organic feed and no antibiotics, growth hormones or any animal-by-products.
The benefits of organic foods are aplenty. Not only is it more environmentally friendly to consume organic foods as harmful chemicals are not used in organic farming, it is also healthier and more nutritious as organic foods do not interact with foreign compounds. Organic produce is also fresher as no preservatives are used with multiple researches showing organic foods being richer in antioxidants and nutrients, bringing about an array of greater health benefits.
In the month of April, AquaMarine @ Marina Mandarin Singapore partakes in wholesome eating with fresh organic ingredients integrated into a delicious, Halal-certified buffet spread. Patrons get to enjoy a healthy take on international and local cuisine. For instance,Chicken Rice will be served with Brown Rice, vegetables used will be organic and meats will be marinated with yogurt. Highlights include Samon En Papillote with Lemongrass and Fresh Coriander, succulent Chicken Shawarma with Yogurt Pineapple in Whole Wheat Tortilla and 45˚c Sous Vide Barramundi with Fennel Fronds and Caramelized Onion.
