Did you know…


Canned foods, though practical and economical, can be harmful due to the BPA lining typically found in the cans.  According to the Mayo Clinic, BPA can have adverse health effects on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland.  This is particularly true in fetuses, infants and children.

Despite FDA reports that canned foods typically contain very low, “harmless” levels of BPA, some food manufacturers have decided to err on the side of caution… opting to utilize slightly more expensive BPA-free cans in the interest of their consumers’ good health.

You can enjoy foods from the following companies with peace of mind:

Eden Natural Foods

Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics

Oregon’s Choice

Wild Planet

Eco Fish

Trader Joe’s canned corn, beans, fish, poultry, and beef (check with your store on each of these, as they do not advertise the BPA free claim which means that it can change at any time)

Native Forest/ Native Factor

Foods that should never be purchased canned:

Tomatoes/ tomato paste

Any foods containing acidic foods/ ingredients (ie. citric acid)


Opt for foods packed in glass jars
