Numbers on Stickers found on Fruit and Vegetables


Did you know...
Or have you ever even thought about what
those little stickers, that are so hard to remove, found on your fruit and vegetables in your supermarket tells you about that item?
As much as we may dislike them, these little stickers or labels attached to the fruit or vegetables do more than speed up the scanning process at the checkout stand. The PLU code, or price lookup number printed on the sticker, tells you how the fruit was grown.
It's something we all should know but were never told because most people don't know
what they mean. Well here is the information about them and it may surprise you to know that those stickers tells us more than just the price per item.

Any fruit or vegetable that has a sticker that starts with the number four (4) means it's commercially produced and NOT organic.

Any fruit or vegetable that has a sticker that starts with the number eight (8) means the fruit was GENETICALLY ALTERED

Any fruit or vegetable that has a sticker that starts with nine the number (9) means it's ORGANICALLY GROWN and instead of four numbers total on the label they have five numbers.

There you have it...Now you can purchase your fruits and vegetables knowing a little more about what you are putting in your body.
