Carrots can replace synthetic dyes in foods

A number of synthetic dyes in foods are suspected of having unwanted side effects especially for children. For this reason, over the past ten years, the EU has required products containing selected synthetic dyes to have clear warning labels on the packaging. This has resulted in a great demand for natural dyes worldwide. Now researchers from…

No side effects with mechanical control of root weeds in organic fields

A 4-year trial in Norway has highlighted the effect of various mechanical weeding methods against root weeds on organic fields. The team of researchers from Denmark, Norway and Sweden also investigated whether mechanical weed control, in addition to an effect on weeds, could also increase disease infestation, adversely affect soil structure or…
