What Are Your Codes Telling YOU?

Do you ever look at your fruit, see the little sticker on it and think to yourself, "What the heck is this for?"? The sticker provides a code which can actually tell you if your produce is organic, genetically modified, or conventionally grown. (Cool Right?!)

  • If the code is a 4 digit number, starting with a 3 or 4 then it was conventionally grown.

  • If the code is a 5 digit number, starting with a 9 then your food is organic.

  • If the code is a 5 digit number, starting with an 8 then the food is genetically modified.

Example: This apple was Conventionally Grown

So next time you're in the grocery store and you want to know if something's organic, look at the code!!
