Apples Worst For Pesticides

Dirty Dozen

The Environmental Working group has released its latest Dirty Dozen top pesticide-laden food list and the Clean 15 best fruit and veg. This is important for trulylgutenfree-ers because, as we know, many agricultural chemicals are derived from the ubiquitous corn.

Apples, topped the baddy list with celery and peppers taking silver and bronze (hey, it is Olympic season, although these are not good medals to have!)

Top cleanest goodies were onions, sweetcorn and pineapple.

This is fab work from the EWG and I look forward to this list every time as it is very useful knowledge to have to hand. You can see the full good and bad lists here: EWG’s Shoppers Guide to Pesticides In Produce.
