6. Store Food in Glass or Stainless Steel
Those plastic containers may be lightweight and say “microwaveable,” but they may be leaching BPA into your food. When you microwave or place hot food into a plastic container, BPA can leak into the food. Instead, opt for glass or stainless steel to keep food inside. Porcelain works also!
5. Purchase Frozen or Dried Food
Instead of canned beans, you can buy them frozen or dried. Plastic wrapping doesn’t leach as much BPA in colder temperatures. And although dried beans take some extra cooking steps, they taste better.
4. Stay Away from Harsh Detergents
Harsh cleaning products and detergents can strip away layers of plastic and release BPAs. Use mild detergent instead, and avoid hot water.Related: 8 BPA-Free Food Companies
