Decoding our food

Recently I was flipping through a magazine at my kids' dentist office and saw a small article about the little stickers on our grocery store fruit, and how the numbers on the stickers had meaning. Who knew? I certainly didn't! I thought they were just there for pricing purposes.

If there are FOUR digits: It's conventionally grown.

If it starts with a NINE, it's organic.

If it starts with an EIGHT, it's genetically modified (i.e. yuck)

Pretty interesting stuff, no?
