We can get different diseases from the food that we eat, but we can also get diseases from food containers that we use.
We all need food containers in our home, in office and anywhere we'd like to store our food.
Did you know that not all the plastic food containers that we use are safe. There are amounts of BPA that can be found in some foods packaged in these containers.
What is BPA?
BPA, is a chemical that has been used for more than 40 years in manufacturing plastics and resins, many hard plastic food containers such as baby bottles and reusable cups and the lining of metal food and beverage cans, including canned liquid infant formula.
In our daily lives we tend to forget to check the labels of food containers that we use if it is BPA free or not. Klio food keepers provides the guide in categorizing different types of plastics.
1. Look under the plastic food keepers. Only codes 2, 4, and 5 are known to not leach harmful toxins / carcinogens in your food.
2. Semi clear and colored plastic may hide the use of substandard or low quality materials.
3. A strong plastic smell is caused by using low quality materials. Good durable plastics are odorless.
4. Be mindful of the limitations of your food keepers. Improper use may be hazardous to your health.
5. Replace plastic food keepers every 2 years. Old plastics may become greasy, worn out, and start leaching toxins.
Studies and research has shown that BPA can seep into food or beverages from containers that are made with BPA. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.

On Tuesday July 23, your truly got the chance to visit the Klio factory and I was able to check out all the products which I realized I've seen and used before but I was not aware that they were Klio brand.
When I saw their products they all look familiar to me...the color, the size and shape. The Klio 3-piece Food Keeper reminded me of my previous baunan I use to have when I go to school and even at work. Klio has been present in my bag for a long time.
