One of the experts, Dr Steve Ball, Head of Endocrinology at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust high said “I avoid heating plastics as several studies have shown this raises the risk of chemicals such as phthalates leaching into the food. If I am microwaving something, I always take it out of the plastic tray first and put it on a plate.”
The US Government’s National Institute of Environmental Health Science now recommends that consumers should not microwave food in plastic containers as heat makes chemicals more likely to leach out; they should also use fewer canned goods, and store foods in glass, porcelain or stainless steel.
At Friends of Glass we believe in being glass champions as it is the trusted and proven packaging for health, taste and the environment. With glass being reusable, heat-resistant and recyclable, it is a great and safe choice for food and drink packaging.
Glass packaging is one of the most popular forms of packaging that is used in the Food & Beverages, Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals, and Cosmetics industries. It is used in the Food & Beverages industry because of its inert nature which keeps food and drink fresher for longer.
