Just what is BPA found in some plastic bottles?

Plastic water bottle

Why drinking water from plastic bottles stored in the heat of your car is bad for your health.

We’ve all done it, bought a bottle of water whilst we’re out and about, only to come back to the car and discard the bottle on the passenger seat, to then pick the drink up days later and finish what was left. Recent studies show many plastic bottles contain levels of BPA albeit low levels. Together with the warm temperatures reached in closed cars may actually cause the release bisphenol A (BPA) in to the water. So just what exactly is BPA? BPA is the main component of polycarbonate, the hard plastic, high performance clear plastic, used sometimes in drinks bottles and other food storage containers. While BPA is not a major concern at the low levels found in some plastic bottles, many officials are saying the chemical can cause negative effects on children’s health.

Rest assured our plastic juice bottles do not contain BPA.

With the above in mind our customers can be extra reassured none of our juice bottles contain BPA and just to reassure our customers further, something to keep in mind when choosing the right bottle for your flavoured waters and beverages. Check the recycling symbol on the bottom of the container. If the bottle is a triangle 2 HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) or 4 LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene) or 5 PP (Polypropylene) your bottle is fine. Also safe to use, our most popular range of juice bottles, our PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) clear plastic bottles. You could say most commonly associated with the storage of water and flavoured waters these are usually triangle 1 although free from BPA we still recommend bottles are for one time use, and should not be reused.
