Did you know…

Yes, as it turns out, the stickers on produce, 

as well as the adhesive, are regulated by the

FDA and deemed safe for consumption.

Considering what else the FDA 

deems as “SAFE”, such as

saccharin or aspartame

I’m not sure that’s very comforting. 🙂

For other interesting facts about

these “stickers” watch this video:

About Tamara Hoerner (1258 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. I’m sure its safe in the same way as how some cosmetics are marked safe or edible just because they wont send you to the hospital for consuming them, but they’re still not good for you!
