As an environmentally friendly packaging material, aluminum foil packaging products have increasingly appeared in the lives of consumers. Some consumers have questions about the safety of aluminum foil products. As an aluminum foil product manufacturer, talk to consumers about aluminum foil packaging. the opinion of.
A medical report pointed out that in the heads of Alzheimer's disease (commonly known as Alzheimer's disease) patients, the content of aluminum was found to be higher than that of ordinary people, so it was concluded that aluminum would cause Alzheimer's disease. After the report was released, it received the attention of the medical community all over the world and gradually spread, making the domestic medical professionals who were the first to get information to abandon the aluminum containers they used and spread this conclusion to the society. Therefore, most consumers have the impression that aluminum can cause Alzheimer's. However, the experiment needs to be reproducible. In the subsequent verification process by other scholars, they did not reach the same conclusion. In the suspicion of other medical professionals on the report, the publisher of the original medical report also pointed out that during the experiment, The test product was stored in an aluminum box for refrigeration. Whether aluminum can cause Alzheimer's disease is still unclear, and the cause of Alzheimer's disease is not completely clear in the current scientific environment.
For aluminum foil containers, is there a high content of free aluminum ions that enter consumers' bodies through the packaging? The answer is also negative. Aluminum is a lively metal that forms a dense oxide film in the air. The oxide film is inert and stable in nature. It is not easy to react with external substances. As long as it is not in a strong acid environment, it will not precipitate aluminum ions, and it will be ingested in life. Excessive aluminum ions are generally due to the intake of too many unqualified foods containing aluminum additives. In addition, some consumers believe that aluminum foil is tin foil, which contains heavy metals. In fact, aluminum foil and tin foil are completely different products. The melting point of aluminum foil can be as high as 660 degrees and can be used for oven cooking, while the melting point of tin foil is only about 230 degrees, which cannot be operated in an oven. Tin foil contains heavy metal lead, and the alloy composition of aluminum foil has no lead content. Lead will harden the aluminum alloy and affect the ductility of the aluminum alloy. The price is also higher than that of aluminum. Therefore, in theory, aluminum foil products will not be artificially added. Heavy metal lead.
Aluminum foil containers have been completely popularized in many countries in Europe, America, the Middle East and other places. As metal packaging aluminum foil containers, they have good safety, heat insulation, environmental protection, and high-end feel that plastic containers can't match. As a packaging container, aluminum foil has been recognized by environmentalists in the world. At the just-concluded 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, Li Chong, deputy to the National People’s Congress, also pointed out: With the development of e-commerce, express delivery, and take-out industries in recent years, plastic lunch boxes, plastic Packaging has created new resources and environmental pressures. Aluminum foil containers and lunch boxes are suitable for national conditions and can completely replace plastic packaging. They can enter the takeaway, distribution, and pre-packaged food industries, and they can also be used at home.
