Produce You Need To Buy Organic & What You Can Get Away with Buying Non-Organic
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has released its 2017 Dirty Dozen list. This year, the annual report found that almost 70 percent of 48 non-organic samples tested positive for at least one pesticide. And get this: A single strawberry sample harbored 20 different pesticide residues.
The Clean 15 list includes produce that is least likely to be contaminated by pesticides.
EWG’s Clean 15:
- Sweet corn
- Frozen Sweet Peas
EWG’s Dirty Dozen:
- Sweet Bell Peppers
