BPA stands for bisphenol A and is a chemical compound which plays an important role in the production of plastics and resins and is used predominantly in combination with other chemical substances. A well-known plastic, for which BPA is used, is polycarbonate (PC).

BPA is said to have an oestrogenic and androgenic effect. According to the Federation for the Environment and Nature Protection, bisphenol A is one of the hormonal pollutants that can interfere with our hormonal balance, even in tiny quantities. Particularly in the case of small children, it can inhibit physical development. Also lead to the development of cardiovascular diseases and reproduction disability. Especially when the packaging is heated, the BPA dissolves from the plastic and goes into the package contents, for example when filling hot food and drinks in plastic containers made of polycarbonate. Or water bottles of ordinary plastic are lying in the car and heat up in the summer.

Bisphenol A is found in beverage cartons (inside coating), microwave-proof crockery, milk bags, bottles and containers for food and beverages as well as in cans. In the EU the use of polycarbonate for baby bottles is prohibited, because it contains bisphenol A. Only the label “BPA free” indicates that no bisphenol is present.
