2.2.1 How to wash fruits and vegetables

Properly washing fresh fruits and vegetables is a proven way to remove germs and unwanted residues from their surfaces before eating them.

Fresh produce passes through many hands before you purchase it from the grocery store or the place where you usually buy them.

Adequately washing fresh fruits and vegetables before you eat them can significantly reduce residues that may be left on them during their journey to your kitchen.

Here is some tips for cleaning fruits and vegetables from *FDA (*FDA---Food and Drug Administration)

  1. Wash your hands for 20 seconds with warm water and soap before and after preparing fresh produce.
  2. Rinse produce before you peel it, so dirt and bacteria aren't transferred from the knife onto the fruit or vegetable.
  3. Gently rub produce while holding under plain running water. There's no need to use soap or a produce wash.
  4. Use a clean vegetable brush to scrub firm produce, such as melons and cucumbers.
  5. Dry produce with a clean cloth or paper towel to further reduce bacteria that may be present.
