Resumen

SWEENEY, Falon; VASQUEZ, Felipe Salinas  y  SEPULVEDA CHAVERA, Germán. The concept organic in foods: a case study in the Azapa Valley, Chile. Idesia [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.4, pp.121-123. ISSN 0718-3429.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-34292015000400015.

To identify the level of knowledge, understanding, and consumption of organic food products in the North of Chile, a case study was performed with a group of patients of the Rural Health Post located in San Miguel de Azapa, Arica & Parinacota, Chile. Opinions of the nutritionist employed at the health post and a local organic farmer are included in the analysis of this study. The patients' interpretation and understanding of the definition of an organic food product was explored in this descriptive, transversal and ethnographic study. The subjects were males and females ages 18 and older of different ethnicities and levels of education. The information gathered reveals that a distorted and poorly defined idea of organic food products exists in Azapa Valley, independent of age, ethnic and/or education level parameters. No individual correctly defined what signifies an organic food product, with the exception of the local organic farmer. It is necessary to establish a campaign to produce an understanding of the definition of an organic food product, as well as the advantages and benefits that the production and consumption of organic food products would have on the land and people of northern Chile.

Palabras clave : organic; nutrition; ethnicity; rural.
