How healthy are canned foods?
I keep asking myself this question every time I am tempted to buy canned foods because, let’s face it, they are affordable compared to fresh food but also tasty and convenient. Canned foods were invented by Nicolas Appert, a famous French chef who started experimenting by preserving food in glass containers and sealed bottles. Later on, in 1804, his factory started making tin cans and proved to everybody that food could be kept in these containers for a long period of time without spoiling.
Nowadays, we can store and prepare food in a variety of practical ways thanks to the advancements in refrigeration, freezing, and microwave technology over the years.
However, the potential inclusion of Bisphenol A is something to take into consideration when selecting canned goods because this particular substance can negatively impact human brain function, resulting in high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
