Organic Food Stores in Hyderabad | Hyderabad

We have heard our parents and grandparents tell us about how they had food cooked from what they grew in their backyards; about how the fruits and Lemonvegetables that they ate were therefore easily available, fresh and more organic than what’s available at the vegetable vendors or the neighborhood supermarket. Organic food, therefore, is not a new discovery. In fact, that is exactly how food was available earlier. It’s just that today it has resurfaced as a new trend and fast catching on in Hyderabad too.

Organic food is basically food that is grown and preserved without the use of chemicals, artificial pesticides, genetically modified organisms and other synthetic inputs. It is therefore considered to be a healthier option. Apart from that, organic food has an environment-friendly angle as it prevents water and soil contamination.

Now if news reports are to be believed, organic food production has been growing at a fast clip of about 20 per cent. In fact, there are companies abroad that even sell organic pet food! So if you are planning to go organic as well, here is some information collated by MetroMela on the stores across
Hyderabad, that sell organic food.

24 Letter Mantra, Hyderabad
sells all organic foods. It even has a name that is organic in its true sense - the 24-letter principle in Sanskrit (Tvam Bhumir Apo Analo Anilo Nabha) which means that you alone are earth, water, fire, air and ether.

What you can get at 24 Letter Mantra Hyderabad
are organic grains, pulses, spices, edible oils, pickles, spreads, fruits and vegetables. Some of the stuff that you can pick over here are Tamarind Jam (Rs. 119 for 375 gm), mild variety of Garam Masala (Rs. 54 for 50 gm), English Breakfast tea-bags (Rs. 40 for 25 nos), Brown Sugar (Rs. 79 for 1 kg), Tofu (Rs. 140 for 340 gm) and Olive oil (Rs. 450 for 1 liter).

Apart from that you can even snack on the organic sandwiches (around Rs. 35), fruit and vegetable juices (around Rs. 30) and even Ayurvedic drinks (around Rs. 50) made from aloe vera and amla (Indian gooseberry).

Fabindia started its business with home linen and upholstery fabric, moving on to hand-woven garments (for which it is more popular today) and then to home products. It then even started its organic food products business in 2004, followed by the launch of its body-care product range.

Its organic food product range includes grains, spices, cereals, pulses, tea, coffee, honey, sugar and the like. At Fabindia,
Hyderabad you could buy pickles, sauces, tea-powder, tealeaves and even pasta, we were told. Pasta and pickles cost over Rs, 60 for 200-250 gm packs. The store is closed on Mondays though. So make sure you do not drop in on that day.

Earth Bazaar, Hyderabad
sells a lot of designer garments and costume jewelry apart from home décor items like lanterns, pots and ceramic bowls. The organic food products at Earth Bazaar, Hyderabad includes jams and pickles that cost about Rs. 110 for 375 gm. Organic coffee and tea are also available in different varieties here.
