However, as a daily precaution, strong acid products or foods containing a lot of salt should not be stored in aluminum foil.

The magical place of aluminum foil packaging

The use of aluminum foil is an indispensable feature of pharmaceutical factories: it provides effective protection against light, oxygen, moisture and bacteria. Due to its characteristics, aluminum foil prolongs the shelf life of medicines, thus making a significant contribution to avoiding waste of medicines. For this reason, aluminum foil is also often used as one of many components in a composite packaging system, for example, from the familiar material used to package UHT milk. Here, the thickness of the aluminum foil can be only 0.006 mm, in other words, even thinner than a human hair.

However, according to current scientific research, aluminum intake does not cause health hazards to ordinary healthy consumers: According to the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA), from a physiological point of view, it is safe to consume one milligram of aluminum per kilogram of body weight. For people weighing 70 kg, the limit for aluminum is 70 mg per week. A person with healthy kidneys quickly eliminates 99.9% of aluminum through the kidneys.

Moreover, according to recent scientific research, the WHO Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) has increased the tolerable absorption limit of aluminum to 2 mg aluminum per kilogram of body weight, which means that we can completely avoid worrying about the impact of aluminum foil products on our health.
