That Number On Your Fruit Is Much More Important Than Most People Realize… Here’s What It Means.
You’ve probably noticed these stickers before, but how many people really know what they mean?
They’re called PLU codes, which stands for “product look-up.” If there are only 4 numbers on your sticker, this means you fruit was conventionally grown with the use of pesticides.
If there are five numbers on your sticker and they begin with the number 8,
that fruit has been genetically modified.
If there are five numbers and they begin with the number 9 that means your fruit was grown organically.
If your fruit doesn’t have a PLU code, eat at your own peril!
