Summary

There is a list of possible processes for each kind of food (milk, meat, vegetables). In any case, only mechanical processes, physical processes, cooking and fermentation are allowed.

Difference

Nature et Progrès standards specify a list of permitted process, detailed for each kind of food, whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not.

Justification

Processing has an effect on the nutritional quality and taste of the final product. Organic products should aim to be both of high nutritional quality and taste. Therefore only non-agressive processes, that respect the integrity of the product, should be allowed.
