Benefits of Using Glass Food Storage Containers
Glass is Ecologically Friendly: Glass is made from a mixture of sand and other elements which are heated to a certain degree. This means there’s no need to cut down trees for rubber and create landfills to dispose them later, which the earth never completely recovers from.
The sturdy nature of glass encourages re-use, unlike plastic which seems built to be disposed after single use. And even when glass is to be disposed, it can easily be crushed up and re-used to create other forms. Using glass inevitably influences us to adopt a culture of conservation.
Versatility: Unlike other food storage containers, glass containers can be used anywhere from the fridge to the freezer, the microwave/oven to the serving table.
Keeps foods fresh: Unlike other forms of storage, glass containers are noted for their ability to keep food ‘harvest-fresh’. Because glass is chemically inert, food put in glass containers undergo no reaction with the glass. But containers such as metal cans react with food and can make them poisonous. And if the glass is kept air tight, the food inside remains in just the same state as when it was initially put in.
Easy to Use: Glass is relatively easier to use in comparison with other storage containers. Because it’s transparent there is no need to crack it open to know what’s inside. And because they’re see-through the color of the food in it adds a certain style and beauty to the fridge or freezer. With the technological development of today, glass can be made in all shapes and sizes and therefore can be stacked conveniently to save space.
No odor and no stain: Glass food storage containers are also noted for the fact that they retain no odor even after being used to hold food for long durations. And even foods like garlic can be put in and washed off with no odor remaining. This is partly due to the fact that glass doesn’t interact with food stored in it.
Glass containers are also very easy to wash, whether its soup, cereal or any other food noted for its difficulty in coming off, glass makes it all easy. And retains that clear and fresh feel even after many months of usage. This is one of the primary reasons why most mothers choose glass baby food storage containers.
