Enamel-lined cans are must-have items for food industry suppliers and businesses. When food is stored in regular, unlined tin cans, it can eventually take on the taste of the tin.

The best foods to store in c-enamel tin cans are nonacidic foods like corn and kidney beans since acidic foods can break down the coating.
