Fruits are essential in vitamins and minerals, but mostly fruits and vegetables in the market are exposed to a lot of chemicals which in the long run may cause several disease.


While you purchase fruit, you probably notice the labels on them. But, have you ever thought about what is their meaning?

There are numbers on the labels. These numbers show important information connected to the fruit. It is called PLU or Product Looking Number.

What these numbers mean?

If the number is 4 digit and starts with 3 or 4, it means that it is NOT GMO, but it grew in farms where there are chemicals and pesticides.

If the number starts with 9, it means that the fruit is organic, grown without chemicals, but if it starts with 8, then it means that this is a GMO food.


A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. Because this involves the transfer of genes, GMOs are also known as “transgenic” organisms.
This process may be called either Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM); they are one and the same.
The term “genetic modification” is used both commonly and legally to refer to the use of recombinant DNA techniques, in ways that are not possible or desirable in nature, to transfer genetic material between organisms.  This concept of genetic modification brings about alterations in genetic makeup and in the properties of the organism developed.  This technique using genetic engineering is highly mutagenic and leads to unpredictable changes in the DNA and the proteins produced by the GMO that can lead to toxic or allergic reactions.

Be very cautious when purchasing these the next time you go to the store.
