I thought I posted this weeks ago with the dirty dozen list, but just realized that I must not have ever hit ‘publish”. Here it is a little late.
Yesterday I posted the very helpful dirty dozen list to make it easy to know what is worth buy organic as far as produce goes. Today I am going to simplify your experience one step more. Did you know that organic produce have a label of their own? In most grocery stores now there are specific areas designated to providing organic which is nice, but you can pick up any fruit or vegetable and know if it is organic or not just based on the sticker.
If an item has been genetically modified it will have a 4 or 5 digit PLU often beginning in the number 8.
If the produce is organic and has not been modified the PLU code will begin with the number 9.
Pretty simple huh? Look the the 9 and know its organic.
