The human history is often categorized on basis of materials used by the humanity like stone age, bronze and iron age.The use plastics in our daily life is so wide that ,we may call the present era as the ‘plastic age’.
The plastic bottles have almost completely replaced the glass and metal containers in cooking oil industry. These plastic bottles for cooking oil packaging are molded from high density polyethylene(HDPE).HDPE is a translucent and excellent impact resistant plastic material.It gives good moisture barrier.
There is a media uproar these days related to leaching of some harmful chemicals into our food from plastics used for packaging. Forntunately,HDPE Bottles and Containers neither contain bisphenol A nor phthalate.So these bottles with symbol “HDPE” at the bottom are safe to use with cooking oil and pose least risk to health.
