Each year the Environmental Working Group (EWG) publishes a list of the 12 most sprayed (with poisonous chemical pesticides) foods, known as the “Dirty Dozen” and a list of the 15 least sprayed foods, known as the “Clean Fifteen.” Here are the Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen lists for 2023:
Budget Tip: For those on a limited budget, one can buy organic when it comes to the Dirty Dozen list but wouldn’t necessarily need to buy organic when it comes to the Clean Fifteen list. However, beware of sweet corn, papaya, summer squash although on the Clean Fifteen list, they can be produced from genetically modified seeds (GMOs). Buy organic varieties of these crops if you want to avoid genetically modified produce.
