Should You Wash Organic Produce?

Should You Wash Organic Produce?

There are a lot of good reasons to consider heading to the organic aisle in the produce section. Organic fruits and veggies boast following stricter guidelines than commercial farming techniques. Many consumers are now paying extra attention to the food they are putting on their tables.

So, the big question is, should you still have to wash organic produce? The short answer is yes.

Even though organic produce is more strictly regulated there can still have traces of pesticides. Unfortunately, no produce is guaranteed 100% free of pesticides. 

Also, any grossness from warehouses, bacteria from insects and even foodborne illnesses can hitch a ride on the healthiest fruits and veggies. 

Our recommendation is to make sure you’re thoroughly cleaning all of your food. Doesn’t hurt to give them a spritz with Arm & Hammer Fruit & Vegetable Wash and follow up with a good scrub. This wash has been flying off shelves as the only food touching Safer Choice Certified product.
