    • I couldn’t agree more, Susie! We never know what manufacturers slip into processed and packaged foods unless we do thorough research. I hope that will change in the future–food labels should disclose ALL ingredients!

  1. I’m excited to try this brand. I no longer buy any canned goods because of the BPA in the liners and my estrogen dominance issues. This is going to be great for me and my family! I love pumpkin! Thanks for sharing this info and for your giveaway!

  2. Thanks for the great info. And wonderful recipes! My kids are loving your strawberry mousse. I have made strawberry blueberry and strawberry banana.

    Just wanted to let you know I was at trader joes last week asking about bpa free cans. We are currently on gaps. And some of their items are bpa free and some not. Canned tomatoes are. Soups, sardines, shrimp, beans are not bpa free. Could not remember all of it since I was really interested in the tomatoes. Plus the employee said trader joes brand organic tomatoes 12 ounce cans are really Muir glen organic tomatoes.

  3. One of the reasons SCD dictates we should not buy any canned vegetables is that companies spray the insides of the cans with a starch so that the product will slide out of the can easily. Was this topic discussed with Trader Joe’s or Farmer’s Market? I would dearly love to be able to buy these. I have baked a pumpkin and while not terribly difficult, the labor doesn’t result in enough pumpkin for my tastes!
