Somerset Cider Vinegar uses BPA free containers

HDPE containers  

11/07/15

Somerset Cider Vinegar is packed in containers made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). HDPE is the highest specification (and the most expensive) plastic used for food packaging. It is leech resistant and it is safe to store your cider vinegar in these containers.

There has been considerable concern in the press recently about the storage of food products in plastics that have been manufactured using a chemical called Bisphenol A (BPA).

BPA is used to make plastic containers from polycarbonates which are cheaper to manufacture.

Very small amounts of BPA have been found to transfer from plastic packaging into foods like fruit juices. The government is convinced that there is no health concern from these small quantities of BPA but there has been criticism from some quarters.

Detractors say that chemicals like BPA interact with the human hormone systems; they are called 'endocrine disrupters'. There is some evidence that some wildlife has been affected by accidental contact with endocrine disrupters. Our advice would be to stick to our High Density Polyethylene containers or decant Somerset Cider Vinegar into glass containers.
