Nov. 09, 2017; By Heather Callaghan, Editor This is your best bet of getting the pesticides off your fruit…(Hint: it’s not tap water).
Recently, we published a shocking report that many items in the produce section carry residues of one or more pesticides. This means that consumers are literally consuming pesticides on their food, despite the safety claims of chemophile propagandists.
But we have great news! If you want the best chance of eating clean food, there is now a tried-and-tested solution.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the most effective method of getting pesticides off of your produce is with a baking soda solution.
The team soaked apples in specific pesticide solutions for 24 hours. In some cases, the pesticide went through the peel, but mostly stayed on top of the peel.
