Aluminum foil is used broadly in food preparation, mainly due to its usage simplicity and manipulation in the kitchen. The simplicity of aluminum foil usage and manipulation can be seen through the facts that aluminum foil is protecting food from the direct influence of heat and consequently it is slowing or stopping food drying, or if food is cooked in water it stops dissolving. Since the usage of aluminum foil is growing the concerns about food contamination with aluminum is also increasing, and should be taken into consideration among present studies. At the present time there are not updated results about the presence of aluminum in food during preparation in aluminum foil, especially because many publically present food recipes (sources such as: internet and different culinary journals) include aluminum foil in dish preparation.
