Are Maple Wood Cutting Boards Safe?

John Boos  the leader in wood cutting boards and butcher block tops just released a study from Dr. Ulrike Kleiner that found that YES they are safer than plastic cutting boards.


I am always looking for the most natural and least wasteful products available that will function in the way I need them to function for a long time.  Think your grandmothers cast iron frying pan or dutch oven.   So this study was great news!  I love my wood cutting boards but have opted to use plastic in the past because of bacteria growth.


I am excited to say that my John Boos cutting board will now be getting a real work-out!

For those of you who like the technical stuff that makes my eyes glaze over after the first few paragraphs here are the links to the studies.
