Eco Food Friday: Eden Foods Canned Beans are BPA-Free

51JOyUq+7AL._SS500_.jpg Did you know that canned foods contain Bisphenol-A (BPA)? BPA is a hormone disrupter that has been shown to have developmental toxicity, carcinogenic effects, possible neurotoxicity, and linked to obesity by triggering fat-cell activity. But have no fear, there is a one choice out there for organic, BPA-free food: Eden Foods. According to Eden Foods:
Eden Organic Beans are packed in lead free tin covered steel cans coated with a baked on oleoresinous c-enamel lining that does not contain bisphenol A (BPA). (Oleoresin is a natural mixture of an oil and a resin extracted from various plants, such as pine or balsam fir). These cans cost 13.77 percent more than the industry standard cans that do contain BPA. This costs Eden $300,000 more a year. To our knowledge Eden is the only U.S. company that uses this custom made BPA-free can.
I will only buy canned food from Eden Foods; however, due to the acidity of tomatoes, there are no BPA-free canned tomatoes on the US market. I prefer fresh tomatoes anyways.
