Do I have to peel fruit, such as apples, because of pesticides?

  1. It is not necessary. The risks of pesticide residues found on fruit are negligible, if at all. In addition, you cannot remove all pesticides by peeling fruit, such as apples, pears and kiwis. This is because some agents penetrate the skin.

Washing

  1. By washing fruit, for example with vinegar, you do not remove pesticides. That is sometimes claimed, but it is therefore not true. By washing fruit well, you remove dirt and dust, with potentially pathogenic bacteria.

Vitamins in the peel

  1. The skin contains good nutrients, such as fiber and vitamins. Eating fruit with edible skins, such as apples, pears, kiwis, and grapes, with skins also reduces the need to throw away food.

Checks

  1. The Dutch government has taken various measures to prevent you from ingesting too many pesticides. It is strictly monitored by the NVWA, the Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority, among others.
