Landscape image - Natural versus Organic

According to AAFCO, the regulatory body that governs pet food, “Natural” means the product comes from plant, animal or mined sources that are either unprocessed, or processed without synthetic chemicals.

“Organic,” on the other hand, is kind of like “natural-plus.” Being certified organic takes “natural” to a whole new level given the extremely rigorous regulations that form the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP).
