Researchers have found that baking soda can successfully eliminate up to 96% of pesticides from vegetables and fruits.
In fact, studies have shown that baking soda is even more effective at removing pesticides than regular bleaching procedures. Since baking soda is highly alkaline, it is able to neutralize pesticides by breaking them down into molecules.
University of Massachusetts published a study on the effects of baking soda on gala apples. In the study gala apples were sprayed with two types of pesticides – phosmet, which is a known insecticide, and thiabendazole, a fungicide. After penetrating apple peels, apples were rinsed with three liquids: tap water, baking soda/water solution, and the most popular bleaching solution.
The results confirmed that the baking soda solution removed the most pesticide residue from apples.
HOW TO USE BAKING SODA TO REMOVE PESTICIDES FROM YOUR FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Simply add a few tablespoons of baking soda to a bowl of water.
Place the produce in the solution to soak for a few minutes.
Rinse with cold water.
Cost effective and very powerful!
