These Stores & Brands Refuse to Use Apeel


Robyn Openshaw - Updated: April 16, 2024 - - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links


Maybe you’ve seen that I’ve been investigating what’s really in Apeel that is sprayed on some of our produce, and which stores and brands tell customers they refuse to carry food from suppliers spraying this toxic synthetic coating.

The materials-science PhD owner of Apeel Sciences says his product is “plant-based” and says various things about what the substrate is, he’s said it’s grapeseed, and he’s said it might be any plant-based material. But his filing with the FDA shows various chemical solvents and heavy metals used in the manufacture of the product.

After the past year of my research, I’ve put together a wallet card for you. Of the brands we know have made public pledges to us, to not carry produce sprayed with Apeel. And, on the back of the card, we have also included brands who have been caught selling produce sprayed with Apeel.

It is critical that the consumer be aware of which brands are safe and which aren’t, because first of all, some organic-certified produce is being sprayed with Apeel. And second, they apparently don’t have to label the package with Apeel, if it’s been sprayed with it. Because once consumer awareness began to grow, consumers have been documenting, with video, stickers placed over a package printed with the Apeel label, that says “organic” or something else, covering up the Apeel logo.

Please get the wallet card for free using this link we’ve provided. If you want a printed and laminated card, for a small charge we’ll send you that as well as our other small printed guides. Such as a half-page guide on how to make over 1,000 plant-based meals with what’s in your fridge. And what sweeteners are toxic, to avoid. And what ingredients on food labels are neurotoxins.

Get the Genius Guides if you want to be a smart shopper, but you’re also welcome to just get the Apeel Brands wallet card, and print it out for yourself.

    I can't get the request for the card to go through – seems my ad blocker doesn't like where the link is sending me. Even tried disabling it, but no luck. Checked my email and it is not there either. Very disappointed that it is not listed in your blog since this is such a concern. 🙁

    I am so sorry you can't get to it- you may want to also clear your cache- that seems to resolve many problems.
