You must have noticed the stickers on the fruits that you are buying in the markets. But you probably have never thought what they mean.
1. If you notice that the code has 4 numbers and starts with the numbers 3 or 4, it shows that the product has been grown in the second half of the twentieth century, and it is very possible that it was exposed to unnatural fertilizers.
2. In case the code has five numbers and begins with the number 9, than this means that the product has been cultivated traditionally, as the people grew plants in the past, and today we know it as organic way of growing.
This product wasn’t exposed to pesticides or artificial fertilizers.
3. In case the code has five numbers and begins with number 8, it means that this product is genetically modified. Today we know this food as GMO.
This means that you will need to be more careful when buying products at the market!
