Safe with MAM - Alternatives to BPA
° BPA free: All MAM products are made of BPA free materials. All MAM bottles are BPA free according to Regulation (EU) No. 321/2011.
Bisphenol A (BPA), a component of plastic, has been under international criticism for some time. A European Commission directive goes into effect at the beginning of March which bans the use of BPA in the manufacture of baby bottles. MAM, Austria's leading manufacturer of baby products, has long been using safe alternatives.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is an important component for the manufacturing of polycarbonate (PC). Among other items, food packaging, plastic utensils and baby bottles are just a few examples of products made with PC. The problem: Trace amounts of BPA gradually leach out of the plastic into the food and eventually into the body. This can affect small children and infants in particular.
As a result of exposure to BPA experts and studies have seen disruptions to the hormone system and brain, diabetes and heart damage as well as an increased risk of cancer. Although scientific evidence is not yet conclusive, the European Commission has now put special emphasis on the health and safety of babies and small children.
A big step forward
Medical research, technical know-how and innovation make MAM the world's leading brand in baby product design. Through close contact with science and research, MAM developers are able to move ahead: That's why all MAM baby products are BPA-free – and have been for years.
Safe MAM Alternative
Instead of polycarbonates (PC) containing BPA, polypropylene (PP) is used for baby bottles. For years, this plastic has been internationally undisputed for meeting all necessary requirements. Today, all other MAM products, such as pacifiers, cups and eating utensils are made only from completely safe alternative materials. Now, the complete MAM line provides a safe alternative to give babies the perfect start in life.
