Good to know. "One of my most important food shopping tips ever--those annoying stickers on fruits and veggies tell you A LOT! 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown, 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (GMO), and 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or nasty GMOs)".

what the codes on your fruits and veggies really mean: 4 numbers mean they were conventionally grown 5 numbers starting with number 8 means they are genetically modified (gmo) 5 numbers starting with 9 means they were organically grown (no pesticides or gmos)

Fruit stickers, genetically modified, organic, conventionally grown - good to know.

To determine if your produce has been genetically modified, check the first number of the Price Lookup Code: 9=organically grown, 8=genetically modified. (Conventionally grown foods have only 4 number PLUs)

Take a second to look at the fruit and vegetables you are buying to see if their sticker starts with the number 9. If so then it is organic with no added pesticides and no GMO's
