BPA, Thai Kitchen coconut milk
Just heard back from them, thought I'd check in before I went and ordered some new, non-BPA coconut milk online. I prefer theirs--was hoping they upgraded. From customer service rep:
We are glad you enjoy using our Thai Kitchen Premium Coconut Milk. Simply Asia Foods LLC does not use Bisphenol A (BPA) in any of our spice or extract bottles, or foil type pouches. Although BPA is a component of the lacquer used to line the tin containers of our Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk cans, we are investigating options with our can supplier to eliminate BPA from the current coating.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used in the production of certain plastics and resins, which is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for food contact. Some examples of the products are polycarbonate, a clear, rigid, light-weight plastic used for beverage bottles and protective epoxy coatings that line the inside of food and drink cans. These protective coatings help maintain the safety and quality of canned foods, by preventing the contents from reacting with the metal that forms the can.
All of the containers Simply Asia Foods uses for products comply with the standards for food contact packaging. We are committed to maintaining the safety of our products. We will forward your comments to our Marketing Department.
