We’ve all noticed the stickers on the fruits that we buy in the supermarket. But, have you ever wondered what they mean?A 4 digit code starting with the numbers 3 or 4 means that the product was cultivated in the second half of the 20th century on a factory farm, and probably used artificial fertilizers.
[list="margin: 1.5em 0px 1.571em 1.9em; padding-right: 0px; padding-left: 0px; border: 0px; font-stretch: inherit; font-size: 14px; line-height: 23px; font-family: 'Droid Sans', sans-serif; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(85, 85, 85); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"]
[*]A 5 digit code starting with the number 9 means that the product was grown in a traditional way, has been cultivated for thousands of years, and is considered organic or without pesticides and fertilizers.
[*]A product with a 5 digit code starting with the number 8 means that the product is genetically modified or commonly known as GMO.
