The Organic Center's website contains a section on "Nutritional Quality" . Reports and presentations posted include the Center's March 2008 comparison of nutrient density in organic and conventional foods, and the "State of Science Review" entitled "Still No Free Lunch: Nutrient Levels in U.S. food supply eroded by pursuit of high yields."
