An EAT CLEANER® apple a day will keep the doctor away!

New scientific study reveals that rinsing apples - the most contaminated produce item on the market - is ineffective in removing pesticide residue.

LOS ANGELES, CA, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Grow Green Industries, Inc. (GGI) and Ultimate Labs in San Diego, California, initiated a pesticide reduction test last week that concluded that red, green and yellow apples found at your local grocery stores may be harmful to your health if only washed and dried with water.

However all is not lost, as the study suggests that when the apples were treated with EAT CLEANER All Natural Fruit + Vegetable Wash and Wipes (, they proved a 99.8% reduction of the Atrazine pesticide and 99.7% reduction of the Simizine pesticide - both of which are commonly used in U.S. agriculture but are banned elsewhere due to their toxicity.  EAT CLEANER was more than 99 times effective than water, the control. 

Mareya Ibrahim, the founder and president of GGI says, "We believe, and have now proved, that using the EAT CLEANER Wash and Wipes can play a significant role in safely in effectively reducing and almost eliminating dangerous pesticide residue from apples both at home and on the go with our Fruit + Vegetable Wash and Concentrate and our biodegradable Wipes."   

"Many harmful pesticides are not water soluble and since the majority of produce is waxed, they can get trapped under the surface.  Pesticides such as the ones we tested are not only dangerous, they're banned in the EU and have been linked to cancer and hormonal disruption.  Families and food service companies can safely and effectively use EAT CLEANER to remove wax and pesticides from fresh produce" added Dr. Shawki Ibrahim, Chief Scientific Officer, GGI.

According to a yearly survey by the USDA (US Department of Agriculture), 98% of apples have pesticide residues, ranking them as the most contaminated product in America, jumping from third to first place, in front of celery and strawberries.


Made with a patent-pending blend of ingredients synergistically blended to maximize the power of plant science, EAT CLEANER® is the only line of all natural food wash and wipes for fresh produce, seafood and poultry that removes wax, bacteria and pesticides that water can't - making food cleaner, safer and longer lasting - for consumer and commercial use. EAT CLEANER products are manufactured in the U.S. and the company donates a portion of proceeds to Healthy Child Healthy World, a non-profit that educates families on keeping a non-toxic home.  EAT CLEANER is also the winner of the Disney iParenting Award and the World's Best Technologies Gold Prize and is distributed through wholesale, retail and online channels.


Mareya Ibrahim, Founder and President of Grow Green Industries, Inc. and the EAT CLEANER® brand is an award winning 18-year veteran of the food industry and a food safety expert. Mareya, a mother of two, is strongly committed to community outreach, especially as it relates to the health and well- being of children.
