If you are someone who tries to be health conscious about your diet and lifestyle then you should probably know just how harmful pesticides, growth accelerators, ripening agents, and other chemicals can be for you.
Do you even know how common these chemicals are?
In order to avoid all the chemicals, try to always buy organic produce. Do not, however, neglect to wash it, because bacteria still lives in organic produce just like any other kind.
There are a few telltale signs that will let you know whether or not the food you’re buying is organic or chemically enhanced. Organic fruit and vegetables will never be uniform. They will be different shapes, sizes, and colors.
Huge produce has most likely been grown using growth accelerators. Watermelons, for example, will have cracks on their sides from where they grew too quickly.
If your produce tastes almost bland, chances are chemicals such as florchlorfenuron have been used to stimulate the growth and have ended up draining the flavor. Organic produce will also have a much stronger smell since they still contain all of their oils.
And always wash, peel, and prepare your produce hygienically in order to benefit from all of their amazing properties!
