Organic foods have various levels of Organic: 

If the label says: “100% organic”, then the food must be composed entirely of organic ingredients.  These foods cannot contain sulfites and must declare the certifiying agent.  The USDA Organic seal may be displayed.

If the label says “Organic” or displays thd USDA organic seal then the food contains at least 95% organic ingredients.

If the label says “Made with Organic ingredients” then the food contains at least 7o% organic ingredients.

If the label makes no organic claims, then, the food contains less than 7o% organic ingredients.
