“Clean Fifteen” 2017

The amounts of pesticides and toxins can vary widely in different kinds of non-organic fruits and vegetables. As a result, the Environmental Working Group, EWG, yearly tests how much chemicals conventionally grown fruits and vegetables contain.

Based on the results, EWG has designed two lists, called “Dirty Dozen” and “Clean Fifteen”. Included in the list “Dirty Dozen” are the twelve non-organic fruits and vegetables that contain the most pesticides. On the other hand, “Clean Fifteen” lists the 15 “cleanest” non-organic fruits and vegetables, ie those containing the smallest amount of pesticides and toxins. The lists have been updated yearly in recent years. Below you can find the “Clean Fifteen” list  for 2017.
