If I presoak sprout seeds in bleach, will the sprouts still be considered organic?

Answer                        

Organic mostly refers to the growing process, not the washing or disinfecting. The FDA recommends using 200cc (13 ½ tablespoons) of bleach (sodium hypochlorite) per gallon of water. Some people report good results with distilled vinegar or hydrogen peroxide or a combination of both (same dilution rate).
