For those of us, still dependent on "Super Market" CHAINS to feed the family, here are useful hints to find out which produce is genetically modified or contains GMO components.
I always say - the Genetically modification of Nature is eventually made to modify the last link of the food chain - the unsuspecting consumer.

Now, you can tell which produce is genetically modified.
The stores cannot place signs to tell you but a smart shopper can go shopping with the information given in this article.

PLU Codes , Bar Codes and All That Jazz
By verdungal Sunday, October 17, 2010

We should all try to avoid Genetically Engineered fruit and vegetables, especially if we really want to get to taste true flavour and avoid the obvious unknown effects on our health.


We've all had to peel one of those annoying stickers (called Produce Look-up Codes) off a piece of produce.

You know the ones; they have 4 or 5 digits and seem almost meaningless.

Have you ever wondered what those digits mean?

Here is an explanation of the codes on fruit stickers and how to know which fruits are conventionally grown, organic, and genetically modified.

All fruit has a four digit PLU code.

This number tells you what kind of fruit it is.

i.e. Cortland apple small (4104), Gala apple, small (4132) .

  • Conventionally grown FOUR NUMBERS

Conventionally grown is an agriculture term referring to a method of growing edible plants   (such as  fruit and vegetables) and other products. It is opposite to organic growing methods which attempt to produce without synthetic chemicals (fertilisers, pesticides, antibiotics, hormones) or genetically modified organisms.

Conventionally grown products, meanwhile, often use fertilisers and pesticides which allow for higher yield , out of season growth, greater resistance, greater longevity and a generally greater mass.

  • Genetically Engineered has a five-numeral code which begins with number 8 the food is either genetically modified or genetically engineered. Don't buy it.
  • Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral code, which begins with the number 9. (grown and processed using no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides.

Since organic fruits and vegetables now have to be in separate areas in grocery stores, this confirms that your apple hasn't ended up in the wrong pile.

However, the store does not have to reveal which fruits and vegetables are genetically-modified-but you can find out by looking at their stickers.

The system is administered by the International Federation for Produce Standards , an affiliate of the Produce Marketing Association.

Adherence to the IFPS's PLU standards is voluntary, including the decision to label produce as organic or genetically modified.

It is the Ministry of NSearch that all inherit the Kingdom of God

But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law....

Now the works of the flesh are evident, 

which are adultery fornication, uncleanness, lewdness,

idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies,

outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy,

murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like;

of which I (Paul the Apostle) tell you beforehand,

just as I also told you in time past, that those who 

practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering,

kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control,

against such there is no law. Those who are Christ's

have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,

envying one another.

Galatians 5:18-26

{Sorcery: "Pharmakia;" Primarily mentioned as one of the "works of the flesh." In "sorcery" the use of drugs. Blue Letter Bible. Galatians 5:20}
