Whenever you don’t want to spend the money on an organic pineapple there are some tricks you should know about on how to pick a pineapple that is healthy for you. Stay away from pineapples that’s rind is pinkish color. These pineapples tend to be more genetically modified than other pineapples. Brands like Del Monte and Dole are working on GMO fruits and vegetables. While Del Monte says they are currently “testing” their GMO Rose pineapples and not distributing them, it is something to watch out for. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved the GMO Rose pineapples grown by Del Monte in Costa Rica and may or may not currently be on the shelves in the USA. Dole and Monsanto have also announced a “collaboration agreement” to help “enhance” various vegetables. This five year agreement means there will be many new developments on vegetables such as cauliflower, spinach, lettuce, broccoli and who knows where the list stops. Support your local farmers and always try to buy local foods, supporting companies who genetically modify their foods is never a good choice.
