Healthy Food Tips : Is This Fruit Organic?


You should try to pick organic fruits and
vegetable whenever possible. The way you can tell if the fruit and vegetable is organic,
well, of course they have the signs up in the store, but a lot of people pick stuff
up, they smell it, they squeeze it, and then they put it down possibly in the wrong place.
There actually is a way to tell just by looking at the little sticky label on your produce,
whether it’s organic or conventionally grown OR genetically modified. When you have conventionally
grown fruits or vegetables, they have a 4 digit number on the sticky label. It could
be any 4 digit number. This one is 3110. So you know that this orange is a conventionally
grown orange, so it is not organic. Organic produce, on the other hand, will have a sticky
label with a 4 digit number, but it will be preceded by a 9. It’s really a 5 digit number
preceded by a 9. You can tell that this avocado is organic, and this avocado is not. The way
that you tell if a product is genetically modified: it will have a 5 digit number beginning
with 8.
