Canned goods are dry canned in steel cans that are enameled lined to keep the can from rusting. The enameling does contain Bisphenol A (BPA) but because this is not wet food, it does not get into the food and is not a health concern.
There are two main reasons to use a double-enameled can, first the flavor of your food is preserved by creating a layer between the steel and the food. Without the layer the food will take on the taste of the steel can over time. The other benefit is preventing rust both internally and externally. Moisture coming in contact with metal will lead to rust which over time jeopardizes the can’s ability to create the ideal atmosphere for the food contained inside. While enamel cans cost more, you shouldn't settle for anything less.
At this point, all the lined cans have some (parts per billion) BPA in them. Back in the 50's through the early 80's, the BPA content in the coatings in cans was MUCH higher than now; in the parts per MILLION as opposed to parts per BILLION now. No ill effects were noted to the people eating foods from those cans all those years. BPA hasn't been outlawed in cans for that reason. It has been safe all these years. BPA free enamel is still in the works; still in the development and research phases.
It is only recently that people have some to depend on supermarkets to supply food on a regular bases. We are blessed with so much abundance that we easily forget how our grandparents and great grandparents provided food for their families. Families are now starting to wake up and realize that our food supply is not as secure as we would like. As we have shifted the responsibility of food production and storage to others, we have left ourselves vulnerable to all kinds of disruptions from government created or natural disasters in our food supply.
You will also want to consider fighting inflation. Stockpiling food for your family's stored food supply not only gives you security but is kind on your wallet. In the old days, people would buy and produce food for a year. They would go to a food storage store like a general store and buy large bags of grains, salt, sugar, and beans. We would like to be your food storage store of the future providing you with food for a year. All kinds of stored food is available now days. Most of it is far more nutritious then it use to be because of modern processing methods like freeze drying and dehydrating.
Buying large amounts of food at once can also save you a lot of time. And as they say, time is money. It take just as long to buy a small about of food and it does to buy food for a year. It is also a green way to buy. Just think of all the gas and energy that you will be saving buy only need one or tow truck loads to supply your food.
