Can aluminium foil containers go in the freezer?
In Italy the use of aluminium food containers is regulated by the Ministerial Decree 18 April nr. 76. It explains the best way to use aluminium trays to ensure compliance with health and safety law.
It’s explicitly written into the Decree that plain aluminium containers can be in safe contact with non-acidic or salt-free food for more than 24 hours if put in the freezer. What does it mean? Aluminium trays can go in the freezer to maintain quality of the food, reduce food waste and allow you to eat meal prepared later. Besides, remember that you if you use lacquered aluminium containers, you can freeze all kinds of food.
