HDPE Food Grade

All FDA approved Food Grade Plastics are not the same. In fact there are several, about 7 major players with some minor variations. They are all made with chemicals, and Dr. Clark states what she believes to be the safest variety of all food grade plastic is HDPE Plastic. We all know the strange plastic taste water can get from a clear plastic bottle. HDPE is never crystal clear. HDPE Plastic is what most gallon sized milk jugs are made from. It is usually a milky semi-clear plastic or a solid opaque white. Dr. Clark advises not to use a colored variety, as the semi-clear or white HDPE seems to test best. HDPE stands for High Density Polyethylene. Over and over in the recipes in the back of Dr. Clark's new book, she mentions at the end of each recipe, store food or beverages only in HDPE plastic containers. She also states to NOT use cling wrap, aluminum foil, enamel ware, Teflon, glass, wood, Styrofoam or other plastics to prepare or store food. One is left with basically High Quality Stainless Steel for cooking and HDPE plastic for food, beverages, herbs, and home made body product storage.

Look for the # 2

It's rather easy to tell what kind of plastic something is made from. Anything that is made to hold food will have the marking on the bottom to let you know what it is made of. All you need to look for is the small triangle of arrows that make up the recycle logo that is on all plastic containers and packaging. If the number in the center of the triangle is a 2, you have HDPE plastic. You can go around your house right now, and pick up any milky white semitransparent food container. Lift it up, look on the bottom, and look for the triangular recycle logo. If there is a number 2 in the triangle, you have a food storage container that is HDPE Plastic. That is what Dr. Hulda Clark advises we all use to store our food and beverages in - with no exceptions.
