Code On Plastic Bottles (baby Milk Bottles)?
Afternoon ,, I just found out about the codes on baby milk bottles then if those who don’t have a numeric code under the baby’s milk bottle, what’s the impact ??
The code on plastic bottles (including baby milk bottles) is indeed necessary because it can affect your baby's health.
In general, the code on a plastic bottle is =
Number code 1 or PET / PETE, Poliethilene Terephtalate. Usually used for bottled mineral water, only for one use and should not be filled with hot or cold water.
Code number 2 or HDPE, High Density Poly Ethylene. Similar to PET, only for single use. Usually used for bottled drinking water
Code number 3 or PVC, not for food ingredients because it can cause damage to organs.
LDPE, code number 4, is usually used to wrap food (plastic plastic) in the form of soft plastic, not to be used more than once.
PP si code number 5, the safest to use for repeated use and food.
PS or Polystirene, also known as Styrofoam. Avoid contact with heat and food.
Others. Not for the use of food ingredients and drinks because it can remove BPA which is harmful to the body.
To choose a safe milk bottle, you can use tips =
Look for the code number 5 or PP.
Look for the BPA FREE label.
store food or drinks in glass or stainless glasses.
Pay close attention to the bottle code on the bottom of the bottle (bottle bottom). This code is present on all plastics. If you don't know the bottle code, it's best to replace your bottle with a new and safe one.
I hope this helps.
