Plastic jars, sometimes called “gummed” jars, are a popular way to store food and beverages, particularly for small quantities.
But plastic is not an all-purpose plastic, as there are a number of drawbacks, such as breaking down in the heat, and the plastic is porous, meaning it can cause the food to burn and break.
But a recent study suggests that these drawbacks may be outweighed by the fact that plastic is easier to clean and it’s easier to reuse, particularly when used for storage of food and drink.

The jars were manufactured by Mason Jars, a Canadian company, and had an initial shelf life of 12 months.
We tested them at home to see how they performed and to see if the food could survive for long periods of time in the jars.
The glass masonic jar lasted three months, while the stainless steel jar lasted six months.
Both jars were placed in the refrigerator for a minimum of six months and then stored at room temperature.
The stainless steel jars were kept in the freezer for another 12 months, and we also tested the jars at room temperatures.
Both mason jars survived for over six months in the fridge, while we found the glass jar to be much less durable.
Both were used to prepare food and drinks for the study.
We used a range of ingredients from whole fruit and vegetables, to baked goods and frozen desserts.
The study was conducted in collaboration with the Centre for Food Safety, Food Waste Reduction and Environment, and Food Preservation Centre, Food Safety Education Centre of India.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and Food and Agricultural Organisation of the European Union (FAOSTE) are also sponsors of the research.

The food-and-drink manufacturers of the world are all busy with food and product safety.
As we noted in our recent report on food safety, more than two million tonnes of food were lost to food-borne illness in the US in 2016, an increase of 1.7 per cent on the previous year.
This was a record year for foodborne illness and, of the 10 food-related deaths recorded worldwide, eight were related to food safety.
This is a huge challenge for the food industry, which needs to get food safely into the hands of consumers, so we want to see food manufacturers and manufacturers of food manufacturers to take responsibility for their products.
We also want to be sure that manufacturers are doing everything possible to ensure that food safety is always at the forefront of their decision-making process.
We think that this is an important step forward for food safety in India, and it is important that these manufacturers take a lead in ensuring food safety and to be vigilant in protecting their product and their employees.
