Here is how to use baking soda to eliminate up to 96% of pesticides found on fresh fruit!


Consuming generous servings of fruit and vegetables regularly every day is an integral part of proper nutrition.

However, along with the nutrients, there is a risk of also consuming the chemical toxins used in agriculture.

A solution would be to eliminate the vegetable or fruit peel, but doing so is to say goodbye to all the beneficial substances contained in it.

Washing with water is useful but not enough, so the answer may be in using plain baking soda.

According to a study conducted by researchers at the University of Massachusetts, the best remedy to protect ourselves from agro-pollutants is by utilizing sodium bicarbonate, commonly known as baking soda, used as a cleaning product before consuming fruits or vegetables.

From the tests carried out, it was noted that there was a reduction of about 96% of the pesticides present on foods, in particular apples.

In fact, it was found that among all the different types of fruit, apples had the greatest tendency to accumulate harmful substances on the external surface.

In practice it was enough to soak fruit or vegetables for 10-15 minutes in a mixture composed of water and baking soda, to obtain a deep cleaning and an excellent sanitization of the product.

This method has proven to be particularly effective in removing chemical residues from the outer layers of fruit, but not as useful for removing pesticides that can penetrate inside the fruit or vegetable peel.


As previously mentioned, it is precisely in this inner portion of the fruit that most of the vitamins, fibers, and mineral salts useful for human health reside.

These nutrients are necessary for our general well-being, but there is, in any case, a small possibility of absorbing some of the chemical agents that have succeeded in entering the deeper layers.

In any case, washing with baking soda is an efficient, economical, and eco-sustainable method to guarantee a more secure and effective cleansing that increases the healthiness of the food we eat.

Therefore, after all is said and done, it takes very little to clean and eat fruit and vegetables in a totally safe way!
