Eden Switches To Glass Jars For Tomato Products

This is a great idea. I hope other manufacturers copy it:

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)."

It seems odd to be eating jarred organic tomatoes unless someone is on a camping trip.

This is awesome news, since I have been looking for tomato products in glassware for quite a while now.

While the option to jar my own has always been there, time is a form of currency of which I do not have enough.

We've stared keeping leftovers in jars. I've grown cautious about plastics. Besides, glass actually gets clean.

I looked for it at Whole Foods yesterday but didn't see it yet. They carry a lot of Eden products.

Speaking of Whole Foods, they have a good store brand jarred sauce called 365 Organic Fat-Free Pasta Sauce. It's just tomatoes and spices. They sell out all the time. I think people are buying it instead of canned.

shaun, I've been saving jars and using them as containers too! My fridge is full of leftover soups in leftover jars.
