Subject: RE: Citrus and Plastic
- This rule of thumb, citrus vs plastic bottle = bad, is pretty much an old wives tale. Just ask yourself how much orange or lemon juice you see in plastic bottles. Forget the cartons, just look in the store for juice in plastic bottles. Of course if the plastic contains bisphenol A. (BPA), then it bleeds out carcinogens with any liquid. Our bottles are BPA free.
- Our bottles are also HDPE plastic (High Density Polyethylene). It’s the highest quality plastic for just about any product. It happens to be the best choice for safety in so many regards.
- We don’t use citrus flavor. Flavorings are artificial and frankly, I just won’t do it. We use lemon oil but not the lemon oil made from the entire lemon. We use only the rind. If you strip off a lemon rind and bite off a small amount from the inside of the rind, you will taste exactly what you taste in Bocannaco.
