Please note that the cRc has done research on hydroponic produce and in particular on hydroponic strawberries and have found them to have the same levels of insect infestation to their conventional counterparts.
Therefore, the cRc recommended cleaning methods remain the same for hydroponic produce (https://consumer.crckosher.org/consumer/fruitsvegetables/).
Companies like Cleanest and Greenest that carry the cRc logo may be consumed without further checking. One should consult with their Rav as to what beracha should be made on hydroponic items.Back to Alerts
