Solution

The containers used for storing different types of food materials should be carefully selected. The material of the containers also plays an important role. The material used for making containers for storing food materials should have the following characteristics:
1. The material used for making containers should not be poisonous. For example, lead is a poisonous metal; therefore, it should not be used for making containers.
2. The material of the container should not react with the food material stored. For example, citrus fruits react with copper to from poisonous (toxic) compounds. Therefore, the containers made of copper should not be used for storing citrus fruit products such as orange juice.
