Polycarbonate Bottles

By February 6, 2019 No Comments

The FDA states that PC (Polycarbonate) bottles are rated food-grade safe.  The safest way to store your food and beverages in PC containers is to avoid exposure to heat and sunlight.  PC plastics contain a binder called Bisphenol A, which may leach due to heat & sunlight exposure, and has been linked to a wide-range of health concerns.  PC is commonly used in food and beverage containers, however, due to the growing health concerns about BPA in recent years, BPA-free plastics have become more readily available and widely used by consumers.

PC bottles are popular for the following reasons:
*Less costly than other options, like BPA-free bottles
*They are tougher & last longer than commonly used plastics like BPA-free and PET (polyethylene terephthalateon)
*Up until recently, there were very few other options available
*Many consumers are not aware of health concerns with PC, as it pertains to exposure to heat & sunlight
