According to a report made by Professor Dieter Schrenk, Professor of Food Chemistry and Toxicology at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany, in April 2014, glass as a packaging material is 100%, and can protect its contents from external forces – meaning that there is no negative impact to the contents within, and your food and drink stay as fresh and healthy as they were the day they were packaged!
Due to the health benefits associated with glass packaging, it is an ideal packaging material for the medical and pharmaceutical industry – where important medicines and syrups can be 100% protected, and therefore not be detrimental to people’s health. Indeed, in October 2014, a notification issued by India’s Ministry on Health (on the advice of the country’s Drug and Technical Advisory Board (DTAB)) stated that “No pharmaceutical manufacturer shall use PET or plastic containers for packing liquid oral formulations for primary packaging of drug formulations for use by paediatric, geriatric and women of reproductive age.”
On top of that, as recently as May 2015, the Californian state and the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment added BPA – a chemical which can leach into the contents of food and drink from the packaging – to their list of chemicals known to the state to cause reproductive toxicity.
But when it comes to glass, people can know that what you see is what you pay for – a very important sentiment when it comes to making decisions about your food and drink. And as glass packaging is made from 100% natural ingredients, you can be sure that no external elements or chemicals will make their way into your delicious goods.
Glass as a packaging material can fully protect the contents within, and preserve it to the full. Choose glass for your health.
