Usually the antonym of organic is Efficiently Framed Food (EFF for short). Surreptitious Evil May 25, 2014 at 3:58 pm Farmed? When I worked with nuclear stuff, some time ago, I admit, personal preferences came nowhere near anything radioactive (well, except the bananas). Every item you used was rigorously quality controlled throughout the supply chain. Which did make it significantly, even ridiculously, more expensive than a near identical item. Although the grease, for example, that was used to lubricate rocket nozzles would seem not to be an ideal COTS purchase item, I used chemically identical stuff for my remote control car. Which was damn expensive, but still a fraction of the price of the stuff we used on the rockets. SadButMadLad May 25, 2014 at 6:53 pm @SE, expensive, ridiculously expensive – very true. I know of one piece of kit used in nuclear power stations which costs less than $100 to make but is priced at about $10,000. Yes there are regulatory approval tests etc, but seriously!?
