For me, yes. It is enough if you put supermarket peelings, etc in your compost for,you to call your decomposed produce organic.
Why worry about the theory of it all? Where else,would you put your peelings etc.? The air, the water and most everything else is not purely organic. When your compost heap is properly rotted down the result is as good.....as organic...as anything else.
I grow organically.......no artificial fertilisers and "organic" ways of protecting my crops like fleece, companion planting, etc. However, in mpc, bags of dried manure, and the like there is an artificial element in them.
