When we go to the supermarket and buy fruit or vegetables, we often check whether they are in good condition or not before putting them in the basket.

However, the label we find on the fruit or vegetable in question can tell you important information about it.

This sticky label that our children are always having fun take off is not only a toy, it indicates the origins of the food.

First, rest assured, these labels are not harmful to your health.

Some might have believed that the sticky substance on the label could be dangerous, but this is not at all the case.

So, how do we interpret these labels on the fruit?

Here's what you need to know: First, we find a series of numbers, and the reason why these numbers are important is that they indicate the way so the fruit was grown.

For example, if the number starts with 3 or 4, it indicates that the fruit or vegetable has been produced through the use of artificial fertilizers and pesticides.

Labels whose code begins with 8 indicates that the food has been genetically modified (GMOs). Then, those whose code begins with 9 indicates that the food has been grown organically, so no fertilizer or modification.

In short, if you want to buy quality fruits or vegetables, you should look for labels whose code begins with the number 9.For those who are wondering, the International Federation of Produce Standards developed this system of codes.
