With the rise of the #homeorganization trends, food storage jars have become quite a popular essential. Not only do they look great, but certain styles of storage jars have amazing benefits and functionality. However, that shouldn’t be the most important thing – the safety of those jars should be.
As avid homemakers, we can sometimes get carried away with the aesthetics’ of items, without considering the health risks. Take plastic jars for example, we all know plastic and heat are not a good mix. When you heat plastic containers or jars in the microwave, this may cause chemicals to leach into your foods. Heat also helps breakdown plastic, which might be a reason why when you drink water from a warm plastic bottle, it has an odd, artificial taste to it.
Households have begun the shift from plastic to glass, as the health risks are significantly lower, and the durability of toughened borosilicate glass is worth the investment. We pride ourselves on testing our glass canisters to ensure they are of the highest quality, passing all food-grade standards.
These are the safety standards our glass canisters comply with (and this is something you should always look for, when you consider buying glass canister jars for your home):
- Food-safe, lead free & BPA-free
- Comply with the latest FDA requirements
- Food Contact regulations and California Prop 65 Warning compliant
