This Is The Correct And Safe Way To Wash Apples And Other Products

Every year, millions of people fall ill from food contamination, including sickness caused by fruits and vegetables.

Animals, dangerous substances in soil and water, poor hygiene of food employees and several other circumstances can lead to contamination. To avoid this, specialists recommend washing produce thoroughly. Cleaning produce with vinegar helps kill bacteria to ensure your fruits and vegetables are safe for consumption.

In our modern world, almost no food is 100% free of pesticides. Surprisingly, even organic produce may contain some pesticide residues. Washing produce is important to prevent foodborne illness and substantially reduce your exposure to pesticides.

Broccoli, cauliflower, leafy greens, melons, potatoes, berries and other produce without a smooth or soft surface are slightly more difficult to clean. They require a soaking in a 1 to 3 vinegar and water mixture. This ensures the acidic blend kills all bacteria. For heads of cabbage or other greens, you will need to separate the individual leaves for thorough cleaning. This can be a bit impractical at times, but if you use your sink as the container for the water and vinegar mixture, you should have plenty of room. After their soak, scrub the vegetables with a brush and rinse them under running water.

In a study published in Food Control, researchers washed vegetables for 20 minutes in vinegar, a salt water solution, or plain water to eliminate the residue of four common pesticides – chlorpyrifos, DDT, cypermethrin, and chlorothalonil. They discovered that a 10% salt water solution was the most effective, and far more so than washing with plain water. Full-strength vinegar was found to be equally as effective. But using vinegar would get quite expensive and would leave foods with an unwelcome vinegary flavor, making it less than ideal for a daily vegetable wash.
