Are boxed liquids BPA free?

I know that canning typically involves BPA. Is the same true for boxed items, like Pacific soups and Let's Do Organic Coconut Cream?

Awesome! I like to use some products that use Tetra Pak!

Sure, why not. If bacon and chocolate, or chocolate covered bacon are paleo, why not boxed wine. :) I should shut up now before Monsanto invents a paleo-friendly grain.

Yes they are. The box is always your best bet.

My recollection is that BPA is used to make hard plastics and can liners. It's not used in soft plastics. The "boxes" are usually mylar type bags with a box outer layer to protect it, so no BPA in it.

Apparently all boxes made by Tetra Pak are BPA free.

Right now BPA is on our radar, but at some point ALL plastics are endocrine disrupters. Very hard to avoid unless you forgo ALL packaged products. I certainly minimize the packaged products I use, but haven't succeeded in total elimination.

As a secondary factor, much of the plastic packaging that does not get recycled eventually leaches into the water table. We have to turn this around. What will our grandchildren inherit???

Tetra Pak cartons contaminate even water (not to mention food!?) with hormone-disrupting substances according to this study: http://publikationen.ub.uni-frankfurt.de/files/6628/fulltext_6.pdf
