Eden Foods Finds a Better Solution to BPA-lined Cans for Tomatoes and Sauces

Hooray for Eden Foods! They’ve made a move away from BPA lined cans to glass jars at the request of their consumers. They remedied the problem of light exposure

Hooray for Eden Foods!  They've made a move away from BPA lined cans to glass jars at the request of their consumers.  They remedied the problem of light exposure causing discoloration and off-flavor through chemical change in the food by using amber glass.  And while the lids of the jars still contain some BPA epoxy, Tree Hugger noted recently that the BPA is covered by another layer of epoxy so the BPA doesn't come in contact with the food. Also, further separation is created by an area of air/vacuum between the cap and the food, so the surface area exposed to the food is substantially less for a twist cap than for canned goods.

The next question is what is that inner layer of epoxy made from?  Never fear, we'll continue doing our homework and alert you when we find the answer.

  1. can’t wait to hear about the update. Wish they could do away with BPA in lids too. What I really wish is that an organic company would put their sauce in a box. I can only find a non-organic sauce that comes in a box.

  2. YES! I’ve been waiting for this! Thanks so much. I can go back to eating tomatoes canned! I mean…jarred!

    1. Hi Jax – Nope, no response yet. It’s shocking how many phone calls and follow up it requires to gather seemingly simple pieces of info! We’ll stay on it!

  3. Do you know if there is any cooking process that does remove or neutralize BPA from food?  In other words, does heat affect BPA negatively (or positively for us)?
