While about three out of four melanin-deprived adults continue to purchase natural and/or organic foods (75 percent in ’10 and 73 percent in ’09), the number of organic products found in their bland, white grocery basket has increased. Notably, 27 percent of white adults say that natural and/or organic foods constitute more than a quarter of their total whitey-favorite food purchases this year, up from just 20 percent a year ago.
