Have you ever wondered what the numbers on your produce stickers mean?
Most people assume it is only to help the cashier locate the correct price to charge for that shiny red apple. This series of numbers can also give you information about the food you are purchasing.
1. A label with four digits means the food is conventionally grown. (pesticides, etc.)
2. Labels with five digits starting with an eight indicate the food is genetically modified.
3. Labels with five digits starting with a nine mean that the food is organically grown.
So, look for five digits starting with a nine for peace of mind.
