There’s the Produce Dirty Dozen, a list of produce to buy organic to stay away from the overuse of pesticides, and then there is this list, The Produce Clean Fifteen. The writers of this research say that you don’t have to buy organic for these as they are grown in a way that don’t use pesticides as much.
I still buy organic more often than not just to be safe. It’s your call.
The Produce Clean Fifteen
- Sweet corn (buy organic as corn is the #1 GMO’d food)
- Sweet peas – frozen
- Sweet potatoes
