How to spot organic and “conventionally” grown produce by sticky label

On your produce, pay attention to the little sticky label.  The number on the label tells you  what it is vs. any marketing terms. We have all seen it…..”natural”….”healthy”, right?  This does not necessarily mean organic, or GMO free.  Did you know that producers are not required to disclose GMO so in theory they can label produce as organic even through it may be grown from GMO seeds.

Label numbers decoded:

  • 4 digit numbers are conventionally produced
  • 5 digit number beginning with a 8 is genetically modified.
  • 5 digit number starting with a 9 is organic

Good news is your voice matters:

While some products are heavily contesting and defeating labeling laws, all hope is not lost. Based on consumer demand, many retailers are now voluntarily starting to label (on shelves) which products are GMO free.  Much like they have labeled organic and gluten free.  This is great news.
