We are moving towards healthier eating, and have been purchasing macro organics range from woollies. I'm now concerned over bpa as they have admitted the lining may contain small traces.
Does anyone know of bpa free organic tinned foods

After being oblivious to this until last week (thanks to another hubber) I found that almost ALL cans are lined with a BPA resin and companies are not obliged to disclose this so you need to research the brands yoy buy individually. I stoped buying my Aldi tuna because I couldn't find anything on it.

Lentils ( which I can and have started to swap), chickpeas and tinned tomatoes
Chickpeas I could swap for dried but tinned tomatoes will be tricky

just did some reading up on this and apparently BPA free canned foods aren't necessarily better as they replace the BPA lining with some other chemical resin lining.
basically there's no way to safely know whether your canned goods are BPA/chemical free or not.
the bits I read also said acidic food such as canned tomatoes and canned fruits can leach more BPA than non acidic foods so avoiding the acidic stuff in cans is always a good idea. might just be better to buy the tomato passata in glass jars than the canned tomatoes.
I eat those 95g cans of tuna for lunch each day (just one can a day x 4 days) and I'm now rethinking that.
we don't generally eat much out of cans at all, usually it's only canned beans (lentils, kidney etc) or my aforementioned tuna.

Since learning about BPA in cans I have pretty much just stopped using cans. I've found I can just sub chopped tomatoes for canned tomatoes in recipes, I make my own coconut milk in the thermomix if I need any. I buy dried chickpeas and soak. Tuna is the only thing I have no alternative for, but I've pretty much stopped eating it, it has become a `sometimes food' (how sad is that!?!?).
I wish there were stricter laws in this country, making really good choices is almost impossible.

Eden organics ( at most organic shops) have BPA free cans - I get their tinned lentils and chick peas and their tomatoes are in a glass jar not a can
