Is your can lining non-BPA?
The safety of our consumers is very important to us. So when BPA-lined cans raised health concerns, Amy’s quickly transitioned to tin-plated, non-BPA-lined cans.
Our tin-plated can has an approved, non-BPA interior lining The can end is made of tin-free steel and has an approved non-BPA lining as well as a food-grade seal. The can body is lined with acrylic, and the can lid is lined with polyester. The can, lid and the liners are made in the US and are approved by the FDA for direct food contact.
The can’s coating protects the food from touching and reacting with the tin-coated steel interior that could cause off-flavors or compromise the integrity of the can. The material we use is a double-coated protective barrier and does not contain:
- Bisphenol A (BPA)
- Bisphenol S (BPS)
- Bisphenol F (BPF)
- Bisphenol A Diglycidyl Ether (BADGE)
- Novolac Glycidyl Ether (NOGE)
- Butylated Hydroxytoluene (BHT)
- Pthalate Plasticizers
Our current can linings do not have synthetic estrogen as an ingredient. However, we know that some studies have indicated even natural foods and substances can produce Estrogenic Activity (EA), and we encourage our consumers to become as informed as possible if this important subject is of interest.
