In case you didn't see my response in the coconut milk thread:<br><br>
I finally got an email from edwardsons (Native Forest brand coconut milk)!<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">
<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Hi,<br><br>
I was wondering if you could email me some information regarding your<br>
canned Native Forest Organic Coconut Milk, specifically, whether or<br>
not you use BPA in the cans. I'm conducting a survey to find out which<br>
canned foods are free of Bisphenol-A.<br><br>
Thank you,<br><br>

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Dear Erin,<br><br>
Sorry for the delayed response. Please be advised the tin plate of the can (body/end) is lined _internally_ with Epoxy Phenolic Aluminised Sulphur Resistant lacquer (double) and _externally _with Clear Epoxy or Gold Epoxy Phenolic. <b>No bisphenal A is used for our cans.</b> If you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.<br><br>
Thank you,<br><br>

I Googled "Epoxy Phenolic Aluminised Sulphur Resistant lacquer" & couldn't find much aside from chemistry talk that I didn't understand.<br><br>
I'm afraid to celebrate! Some chem-nerd please tell me this is okay!

Cool, thanks! Sounds like it's aluminum, but isn't the whole can? I'm so <i>not</i> a chemist.

Well, here's a tentative hooray! That's the brand I use. I was getting bummed reading the threads on BPA. I don't use very many canned goods so I'm glad to see some good news on at least one of them.

Son of a..... Could someone link me to the BPA threads? I had no idea it was in cans. We rarely use canned stuff but still.
