Have you ever caught yourself staring at the stickers on your favorite, tasty looking fruit?
Have you wondered what the numbers on stickers meant?
To solve your mystery, it seems that they really do matter after all! The first number usually ‘dictates the meaning.
Any number that starts with a “9” means that product is an organic good, i.e. the soil that the product is grown in has been untouched by pesticides, chemically contaminated fertilizers, pesticides and antibiotics.
This food not only tastes better, but it has been scientifically proven to have healthier benefits on our body.
Always remember, we are what we eat so fuel up on the good stuff! It is strongly advisable to look for an organic version of the following food:
- Bell Peppers
The numbers that start a “3” or “4” mean that the food is grown conventionally.
Conventional farming is when chemicals and pesticides are used to achieve bigger, faster and longer lasting crops.
Here are a few items that are okay to buy conventionally grown:
- Sweet Potatoes
Finally, that dreaded number starting with an “8” means your food has been genetically engineered.
This means that the food you are buying has been created by a person or machine in order to maximize productivity.
Try to stay away from this produce at all costs!
And lastly, always support your local farmers! Visit farmers markets and local food stores, and join a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) exchange to ensure that you know where your food is coming from.
To buy organic items at the grocery store is one thing, but it’s another thing to get the opportunity to shake the hand of the farmer who just grew your dinner!
Knowledge is power, and now that you know what you are buying, you can feel comfortable and be sure where your next grocery store stop is.
Cook, eat and stay healthy!
