Did you know about fruit label that you are going to buy?

I got email on this and I believe this is very useful information for all. Look clear at the label before you buy food or even fruits!

Read the Numbers on Your Fruit

Fruit Label

I just found this out about a month ago and I’ve been an organic vegan for over four years, go figure. That just goes to say that we must all remain as students and continue to learn and learn ¡ª never stop studying and gaining new information.

Okay, so what did I learn?
I learned that sticker labels on the fruits actually tell you how the fruits have been grown ¡ª whether they were organically grown or conventionally grown with pesticides and herbicides; oh, and let’s not forget about the genetically engineered fruits.

Conventional Fruit Labels
Four digits and does not start with 9
** mostly starting with the digit 4

Organic Fruit Labels
Five digits and starts with number 9

Genetically Modified Fruits
Start with the digit 8
So next time you go shopping, remember these critical numbers and know
how to avoid purchasing inorganic and GMO fruits.
Shop Safe :)

This is good to know because stores aren’t obligated to tell you if a fruit has been genetically modified (grrr¡­.)

Okay, so if you come across an apple in the store and it’s label is 4922, it’s an conventional apple grown with herbicides and harmful fertilizers. If it has a sticker 99222, it’s organic and safe to eat.
If it says 89222, then RUN!!!! I t has been genetically modified (GMO).
