The Safe Use of aluminum in kitchenRedazione Contital
The aluminum products are useful in the kitchen, they are used to cook foods but for the preservation of food also. The aluminum foil roll and the aluminum food containers are very light and have high thermal conductivity, for this reason they allow a correct regulation of the temperature, and a uniform cooking. Who uses aluminum trays knows that the risk of burning the food is greatly reduced.
Both aluminium foil roll and aluminium food containers are not harmful to human health, it has been scientifically proven that these products are suitable for storing food. However there are a few rules to follow that give you guarantee of safe use. Many government health agencies have conducted research on the aluminum food containers, the results ensure that the use of these products in the kitchen is safe but you have to pay attention to the storage temperature. For example, in the refrigerator at a temperature of 5 ° it is easier to limit the passage of the metal in the food even after many days. Instead, store acid food in aluminum food containers for extended time at ambient temperatures can cause the release of the metal in the food. However both in Italy and abroad, the law has mandated the use of the labels on the containers and on the rolls of aluminum where it needs to be stated:
– Not suitable for contact with acid or very salty foods
– Suitable for contact with food at refrigerated temperatures, whereas at temperatures not chilled suitability remains within 24 hours,
– Food compatible low-power extraction at room temperature for longer than 24 hours.
