An independent review commissioned by the Food Standards Agency has shown there are no major differences in the nutrition content or additional health benefits between organic and conventionally produced food, according to a news report.

The study, carried out by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine drew its conclusion after reviewing papers published over the past 50 years that related to the nutrient content and health differences between organic and conventional food.

A paper reporting the results of the review of nutritional differences has also been peer-reviewed and published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
