The only brand I know of that has BPH- free cans is Eden, a company that has been operating out of Ann Arbor, Michigan, since the 60’s.
Still, I always recommend if you use any canned beans, always wash them really well. You don’t know what is in the liquid they are in, what fell in during cooking, and also I believe it reduces gas if you clear off the cooking water.
I really would not recommend canned cooked rice or vegetables. In Chinese Medicine these are considered “wrecked food” devoid of qi, and in Ayurveda they are called Tamasic, which leads to sloth and fatigue. . But, personally, I will use canned beans on occasion, because beans, of all the foods we eat are the least “energetic.” The difference between a canned bean and freshly cooked bean is not much, compared with fresh vs. canned fruit or veggies.. Canned veggies? Never. That has to be a super emergency.
From their website:
“All Eden Organic Beans, Refried Beans, Chilies and Rice & Beans are cooked in steel cans coated with a baked on oleoresinous c-enamel that does not contain the endocrine disrupter chemical, bisphenol-A (BPA). Oleoresin is a non-toxic mixture of an oil and a resin extracted from various plants, such as pine or balsam fir. These cans cost 14% more than the industry standard cans that do contain BPA. The Ball Corporation tells us that Eden is the only U.S. food maker to date to use these BPA free cans and we have been since April 1999.”
