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) bettejain

Those annoying #fruit stickers can, apparently, be quite informative: A 4-number code denotes conventionally-grown fruits and vegetables (pesticides used); A 5-number code beginning with 8 means, organic or not, the fruit or vegetable was genetically modified (GE or GMO); And a 5-number code beginning with 9 means the fruit was organically grown without genetic modification. #tips
