Good crunch!

Earthbound Farm Organic Celery is an excellent source of vitamin K, and a good source of folate and vitamin A, which plays a role in eye and skin health. Celery’s unique taste comes from a compound that research is beginning to show may also act as an antioxidant and may play a role in reducing the risk of certain chronic diseases.

Celery is a great choice for women who are pregnant or are trying to become pregnant; it provides 10% of the Daily Value for folate — an essential nutrient needed in higher amounts during pregnancy

Choosing organically grown celery is a smart and effective way to reduce exposure to pesticide residues as the Environmental Working Groups ranks conventionally grown celery 2nd on their list of vegetables most commonly found with pesticide residues.

Why choose organic celery?

Celery is #4 on the Environmental Working Group's “Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce,” a list of produce that carries the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally. You can lower your dietary exposure to pesticides substantially by avoiding the 12 most contaminated fruits and vegetables, and choosing organic for those items instead. So choosing organic celery makes good sense — especially for children, whose growing bodies are so much more susceptible to environmental chemical exposures than adults’.

At Earthbound Farm, we grow our organic celery without toxic synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, using sustainable farming methods that protect the environment and help keep pesticides out of our soil, air, water, and food supply. Organic food is the healthiest choice for people and the planet — and we think organic celery tastes better, too!

WhatsOnMyFood.org from the Pesticide Action Network shows you searchable results for vegetables like celery and a wide range of other organic and conventional foods. It’s an easy-to-use and empowering tool for learning about pesticide residues and their health effects for all of us.
