Amber Glass Jars of EDEN® Organic Tomatoes & Sauces, Eden Press Release, January 11, 2011
"Eden Foods announces protective amber glass 14 and 25 ounce jars of organic crushed tomatoes and sauces in their line of shelf stable organic tomatoes. They are the only tomatoes in the U.S.A. packed in amber glass, protecting flavor and nutrients from light damage.
The driving force at Eden Foods for these amber glass jars of tomatoes was the avoidance of bisphenol-A (BPA) in high acid food cans, and failure of the can manufacturers to make BPA free cans for tomatoes.
Amber glass is also free of the endocrine disrupter chemical bisphenol-A (BPA)."
