Affordability of Can foods entices many people to stock up on essentials. However, there are some people who still harbor concerns about the safety of canned foods. Getting to truth about canned foods can assuage some of those concerns and help those on the fence stock up on these budget-friendly staples. Myth No. 1: Can foods are not as healthy as fresh foods. Fresh foods, once harvest, have finite shelf life. Plus, once fruit or vegetables are pick, their vitamin and mineral content decreases each day that they are not consume. Many Can foods are picked and processed on the same day, helping to retain nutrients at their peak and lock them in for many months. Also, according to the Hy-Vee supermarket chain, sometimes Can foods are packed with additional nutrients, such as increased lycopene in canned tomatoes. Myth No. 2: Can foods be full of preservatives. The perception that Can foods are processed foods often leads people to believe theyre full of unsavory ingredients. The term processing is used to describe any food that has been changed from its natural form. So removing corn from cob counts as processing, as is baking or boiling potatoes. Can foods are preserved by heating items and sealing them under pressure. No other preservatives are needed to keep them fresh. Myth No. 3: Can lining are dangerous. There has been controversy concerning BPA-containing plastics for many years. Even though the Food and Drug Administration, as well as other international food safety agencies, has evaluated an extensive body of science and continues to affirm BPAs safety in food packaging, some manufacturers are voluntarily moving away from it. Consumers can find many foods packed in cans with non-BPA linings. However, even foods packaged with BPA are considered safe for consumption. Myth No 4: Can foods be full of sodium. Some Can foods will contain salt as an added ingredient to improve taste and act as a freshness preservative. But Can foods do not rank among the biggest offenders in regard to excessive amounts of sodium. In 2012, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released a study that identified the top 10 food categories that contribute to high sodium diets. Pizza, cure meats, cold cuts, and rolls make the list, while Can foods do not. Myth No. 5: Can foods not taste good. Because foods are Can when they are at peak freshness and ripeness after harvest, they retain their full flavor if properly store. Myth No. 6: All dent cans are unsafe. Cans can become dents in transit. Drop can and it will dent. But that doesnt necessarily mean foods inside dent cans are unsafe to eat. If the can is bulging or if the top or bottom of the can moves or makes a popping sound, seal has probably been broken or compromised by bacteria and should be thrown out. Can food is safe and can make for valuable addition to any pantry.
