inbred

Here is my best explanation:

'it's natural' is the definition.
('inbred' can be similar in meaning to 'natural')

'in food we hear' is the wordplay.
'food' becomes 'bread' (bread is a kind of food).
'we hear' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'bread' sounds like 'bred'.
'in'+'bred'='INBRED'
