Fruits & Vegetables Decoded
Shopping for fruits and vegetables has never been so confusing! From genetically modified to organic to conventional. The list goes on...
Here's a simple method for distinguising those pesky labels when they aren't so clear:
Look for the PLU codes on the labels stuck on your fruits and veggies.
* A four-digit number means it's conventionally grown.
* A five-digit number beginning with 9 means it's organic.
* A five-digit number beginning with 8 means it's genetically modified.
Voila, that should be easy enough. Print out and stick it in your wallet, easy enough.
