All of us have noticed the stickers present on the fruit we are buying. I remember, when I was a child I did not want to eat the bananas without sticker on it. But, do you know why is the sticker there and what does it mean?
1.The produce was cultivated in the second half of 20th century and artificial fertilizer was probably used if the sticker contains 4 digit code starting with the numbers 3 or 4.
2.In case the sticker contains 5 digit code with number 9, then that produce was cultivated in a traditional way for thousands of years and these produces are known as organic. Fertilizers and pesticides are not used.
3.GMO products are genetically modified and they have stickers with 5 digit code which starts with number 8.
This very useful information use it whenever you chose fruits for home. Make sure number 9 is the number your chosen fruit contains.
Make sure other people reach for this information! A lot of people are unaware of the codes they see on the products.
