After annealing at high temperature at the end of its production process, aluminium foil is completely sterile and it is safe to be used in food contact as it will not react with a large majority of foods. In most applications, it is used laminated with another material.

Almost every third home in India uses aluminium foil to wrap food and many use it for cooking too, especially during baking and roasting. But if Ghada Bassioni from Ain Shams University Cairo is to be believed, the pleasure of enjoying aluminium wrapped food may just be doing more harm than you know. According to her, "The migration of aluminium into food during the cooking process is above the permissible limit set by World Health Organisation. There is no rocket science in the fact that solids, liquids and gases absorb more of the environment around them when they are hot but what Bassioni has said may actually hold more value than a mere research paper. Other health studies have suggested high aluminium intake as a reason for reduced growth of brain cells. What cements Bassioni research are several other studies that claim aluminium to be harmful to people with bone diseases. Scientists across the world are trying to establish a link between high levels of aluminium found in brains of Alzheimer's patients. It is interesting to note here that tin foil was used to wrap foods before aluminium foil was introduced in the market. Many people around the world had complained of food tasting or smelling like tin and hence aluminium and other forms of food wrappings were developed and introduced in the world.
