Products that contain chemicals have tags with a code that consists of four digits. On the other hand, natural organic products have a tag with a five digit number which starts with the number 9. GMO fruits and vegetables also have 5 digit numbers, but they start with the number 8. This is an extremely beneficial information, as most of the food in the US is genetically modified.
