A quick update on my earlier post about where to find BPA-free canned goods. Just a couple of weeks ago, Eden Foods, the makers of BPA-free canned beans, introduced a new, largely BPA-free option -- glass jars of tomatoes and sauce.
Their jars use a special amber-colored glass to help maintain freshness, flavor and nutrients by preventing light from damaging the tomatoes. Although the new jars do still have some BPA in the jar lid, it is separated from the tomatoes by another layer of epoxy (likely also not that good for you) and also by an air space.
