When you are buying some fruits, you probably notice the labels on them. But, you have also probably thought of what is actually their meaning. You can notice some numbers on the labels, and they show some important information about the fruit on which they are. The number is called PLU – Product Looking Number.
What is the meaning of the numbers?
If there are 4 digits in the number, and it starts with 3 or 4, it means that the fruit is not GMO, but that it grew up in farms where there are chemicals and pesticides.
When the number starts with 9, it means that the fruit is organic and it is grown without using chemicals. But, when the number starts with 8, it means that the fruit is GMO.
So, the next time when you go to the store, in order to buy some fruits, be very careful when choosing them.
