What’s with the Stickers?

Did you know that the sticker on produce is not just for price scanning at the register? It is also the code used to provide valuable information to improve our health. Here’s what to look for:

  1. ORGANIC – Five digit code beginning with 9
  2. GMO – Five digit code beginning with 8 – Genetically modified
  3. CONVENTIONALLY GROWN – Four digit code – begins with 3 or 4 –   includes the presence of pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.

Remember – ‘Natural’ and “from nature’ does not mean organic. Organic has strict guidelines and cannot contain:

  • Toxic Pesticides
  • GMO’s
  • Antibiotics
  • Growth hormones.
