Eden Foods Bisphenol-A (BPH) -free cans

I am not an advocate for canned foods. However, sometimes you might just want to use canned kidney beans for something quick. The only brand I know of that has BPh free cans is Eden, a company that has been operating out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, since the 60's.

Still, I always recommend if you use any canned beans, always wash them really well. You don't know what is in the liquid they are in, what fell in during cooking, and also I believe it reduces gas if you clear off the cooking water.

I really would not recommend can cooked rice. But, personally, I will use canned beans on occasion. Canned veggies? Never. That has to be a super emergency.


From their website:

"All Eden Organic Beans, Refried Beans, Chilies and Rice & Beans are cooked in steel cans coated with a baked on oleoresinous c-enamel that does not contain the endocrine disrupter chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA). Oleoresin is a non-toxic mixture of an oil and a resin extracted from various plants, such as pine or balsam fir. These cans cost 14% more than the industry standard cans that do contain BPA. The Ball Corporation tells us that Eden is the only U.S. food maker to date to use these BPA free cans and we have been since April 1999."
