High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
HDPE is the most common household plastic. At the grocery store, you see a lot of HDPE plastic bottles in the juice aisle and the milk case. HDPE is also used in butter containers, cereal box liners, and in large food buckets, such as those that supply school cafeterias and restaurants.
Virgin HDPE is a safe plastic for food contact. The FDA has sanctioned recycled HDPE for food contact on a case-by-case basis for over 20 years.
HDPE resin produces plastic that is corrosion-resistant and absorbs little moisture, making it well-suited for storing beverages. Also, HDPE containers dont leach chemicals into their contents.
