What is in pre washed produce
I was GUILTY on two accounts :(woops! I would buy “prewashed organic lettuce” and eat it from the bag and I would ALSO “wash” my not pre-washed fruits and veggies under running water for a few seconds, wipe it off with a paper towel and think it was clean. I “assumed” they were clean and edible and I didn’t really put much thought into the “wax” or residual pesticides. I mean, I was buying organic and rinsing them.
What I didn’t know is that what I was doing was only 30-40% effective. I met Mareya Ibrahim and she enlightened me. You really have to watch the video to see what I saw. When you learn the truth behind pre washed veggies you will be shocked.

I didn’t know this, but even the FDA website says that water is not that effective when cleaning your produce. What are we left with? We are left with produce that’s been covered in a layer of wax, bacteria and pesticides. Leafy greens are number one cause of food born illness. Apples are the #1 sprayed crop. If it hasn’t been washed properly (or washed in chlorinated water), they are picked and packed in the field and never cleaned before they get to us. Always re-wash! A portion of our population really has to be mindful and watch it; pregnant women, children and people with auto immune deficiencies (which is a little over 60% of the population in us alone).

Organic VS Non Organic – Is it better?
Not necessarily… being organic doesn’t mean that it’s free of bacteria or with potential animal manure that carries bacteria. It means, it’s grown without chemical fertilizers and pesticides. With that said, if you are eating organic, it still needs to be washed properly no matter what! Sometimes you see packages that say “Triple Washed”. Think again before you make that salad without washing those vegetables!
