Are Eden Beans packed in cans with enamel lining that contains bisphenol-A?
No. Eden Organic Beans are packed 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 natural 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 can maker, Ball Corporation, confirms that this oleoresinous lining is not corn-based. Ball Corporation also tells us that Eden is the only U.S. food maker to date to use their oleoresinous, non-BPA, lined cans, which we have been using since April 1999.
