Abstract

Like any organic food, by definition, the ecological biscuits do not contain any type of artificial flavors, conservants or colorings (the controversial "E" symbol), are made only with ecological ingredients from ecological farms certified and their nutritional value is very high. In this context, the aim of this study was to identify some resources for some types of ecological biscuits compared with an assortment of the most commonly purchased by Romanian consumers and evaluating of their quality based on the list of ingredients and nutritional values written on the packaging. The best value for price quality ratio in case of organic biscuits brands was considered the Ecomania biscuits, identified in BioGust store in Craiova city. Invariably, the purchase price of organic biscuits is higher than for conventional brands, but the health benefits, especially for children (who are the largest consumers) are extremely important.
