BPA is a common chemical, also known as 4,4’-dihydroxy-2,2-diphenylpropane. It is mainly used in combination with other chemicals in the manufacture of plastics and resins.

BPA is used in the production of polycarbonate, a high-performance transparent, rigid plastic. Polycarbonate is used to make food containers, such as some beverage bottles, infant feeding (baby) bottles, tableware (plates and mugs) and storage containers.

Residues of BPA are also present in epoxy resins, used to make protective coatings and linings for food and beverage cans and vats.

BPA can migrate in small amounts into food and beverages stored in materials containing the substance. As it is such a common chemical that has been in use for several decades, it can be found in small quantities in the urine of most adults.
