Ever wonder what those stickers with the numbers on your produce mean??
With a little research I have found out this:
A 4 digit number means it was conventionally grown (using chemicals).
A 5 digit number beginning with a 9 means it was grown organically.
A 5 digit number beginning with an 8 means it was genetically modified.
Just a little info that you might find useful when shopping. Click here for more info on what “genetically modified” and “organic” mean in detail.
Here is also a link that will tell you the top 15 produce items you should buy organic, and the top 15 that have the lowest amount of pesticides in.
