It is a very common problem when a can of preserves explodes and the food spoils. Very often, this situation happens not because of a recipe violation but because of improperly selected lids.

Therefore, the FoodOboz editorial team will tell you which lids are not suitable for canning. There are several types.

These lids are not suitable for canning: the reasons are named

There are different lids for canning:

  • white metal;
  • yellow;
  • golden lids with a lacquer coating on the inside and outside.

In order for vegetables and fruits to look good and keep well, the marinade must contain a preservative (citric acid or vinegar). Therefore, it is very important that the lid has a special lacquered coating. If not, the material will oxidize.
