Glass as a material occurs naturally when sediments are heated at high temperatures. In the kitchen, glass as a packaging is the best material to prepare and store your holiday meals.
Many times, our senses don’t pick up on the chemicals released from certain packaging. This means that chemicals may be quietly leaching into our food without us even knowing. At the same time, many are also aware of “flavour scalping,” which is where food flavour is lost because of the packaging. But what it all comes down to, is that glass packaging is the number one option that quells these concerns.
According to Professor Dieter Schrenk, professor of toxicology and food technology at the University of Kaiserslautern, there are “four enemies of food packaging: light, oxygen, time and heat.” Glass, however, counteracts all of these. Glass is made up of 100% natural materials, making it impossible for any artificial or toxic chemicals to alter the contents of the food packaging. Glass is also a durable material, meaning that it protects the food from outside factors such as heat.
During this holiday season Friends of Glass reminds you to be safe, be aware of the ingredients you are using, and use glass, natures favourite packaging!
