Title: FOOD CONTAINER
Abstract:
A two piece, sheet metal food container is described. The container is made up of a can body and a container closure. The interior of the container closure is coated with a continuous coating of tin. The interior of the can body is coated with a substantially continuous coating of tin. The upper (open end) portion of the interior of the can body is coated with a continuous layer of lacquer on top of the substantially continuous coating of tin. The ratio of tin to lacquer coating for all of the interior surfaces is greater than 1.5 to 1, resulting in organoleptic properties imparted to the food to be contained therein similar to that of a three piece can body which is completely unlacquered on the inside, i.e., there is only tin exposed to the product.
