BPA-Free Canned Foods

In recent years, the dangers of BPA have caused a lot of people to avoid buying canned foods.  Many people were more than willing to give up the convenience of eating from a can, in order to keep themselves safe from the possible dangers of BPA.  However, the banning of all canned foods is not necessary for you to prevent BPA from entering your home’s kitchen.  You can still enjoy canned goods without fear of BPA.  That is because there are companies out there with canned goods made without the toxic BPA.

The company that is leading the way when it comes to producing BPA-free canned goods is Eden Foods.  They have made the switch to BPA-free cans since before the general public even knew the meaning of BPA.  Initially, Eden Foods did not label their cans as being free of BPA.  However, they have now started to add the labels more recently.  So be on the lookout for it when doing your grocery shopping.

Some other companies do produce BPA-free canned goods.  However, they have yet to state it on their labels.  For instance, Edwards & Sons has confirmed that more than a dozen of their products are packaged in cans that do not contain BPA.

In general, it is best to eat freshly made foods.  However, time constraints sometimes make it impossible to do so.  In such a scenario, it is better to eat from a BPA-free can than to eat greasy foods from a fast food place.  So it might not be a bad idea to have some on hand just in case.
