Ann Arbor, MI (PressExposure) March 14, 2011 -- Grocery shopping in the produce section of any supermarket creates quite the dilemma. Those bananas are not just bananas; those carrots are not just carrots. Some fruits and vegetables may be conventionally grown, while others possess a label: USDA Organic.
Both carrots might be equally orange in color; they might be the same size, offer the same amount of vitamin A. However, the conventionally grown carrot will contain much higher levels of pesticide residues than the organically grown carrot. Pesticides have been linked to various diseases and health problems. Unfortunately, this choice comes with a price tag that not all of us can afford.
Saagara's new application, "Smart Foods: Organic Diet Buddy" can accompany you to the grocery store, escort you through the produce section, and help you decide which fruits and vegetables are best to buy organic, and which can safely be bought nonorganic. By avoiding the foods most contaminated with pesticides, consumers, such as you, can reduce pesticide exposure by 80%.
The app features a color-coded guide, which prioritizes fruits and vegetables according to their safety-those nonorganic fruits and vegetables that contain minimal pesticides (safe to buy nonorganic) to those that are exposed to high levels of chemicals (buy organic).
The app also includes full nutritional content for each fruit and vegetable and allows you to record your intake on monthly, weekly, and daily basis. Easily implemented into your routine, this app is one to bring on each trip to the grocery.
Saagara apps have been downloaded over 150,000 times worldwide on mobile devices across all platforms with all positive reviews. Download the Diet Buddy to your phone or iPod/iPad, and begin eating healthier today!
