Find Healthy Foods Free of BPA
Bisphenol-A, also known as BPA has been getting a lot of attention recently. Banned in Europe as an endocrine disruptor harmful to children and adults alike, BPA continues to be used by USA food manufacturers in their cans and bottles. While the FDA has banned BPA in baby bottles and sippy cups, it is still allowed in food packaging. BPA leaches from food packaging into the foods we eat and studies have shown that it is especially harmful for young children and pregnant women - leaching into the fetus and causing health issues later on.
So how can you avid exposure to BPA? Use only plastic food containers that are certified BPA free, and find food brands which can their food with BPA free liners and seals.
BPA Free Packaging for Beans and More
We have all heard how beans are great for your heart. And if you are a vegetarian or a vegan, they are a central part of your diet. But just how health is it to eat bans form BPA lined cans? Not very.
Luckily, one brand, Eden Organics, stopped using BPA in their cans of beans, rice and beans and chilis back in the 90's. This brand is carried in most specialty and organic markets, but is sometimes hard to find in conventional markets.
Amazon.com carries this brand in the online grocery section of their site, and for $1.69 for a single can of black beans, it is considerably more affordable than the $2.29 price per can I have seen at Whole Foods.
