Aluminum is one the world's most prevalent elements and is found naturally in drinking water and in unprocessed foods.
Depending on several factors cooking or storing food in aluminum pans elevates the levels of aluminum in the foodstuff.
For this reason, in correspondence with international recommendations, we advise that consumers avoid the use of the pans with acidic or salted foodstuffs. Examples of such foods may include - apple sauce, rhubarb, tomato puree, salt herring, leafy vegetables, tomatoes, citrus products, vinegar and different types of pickles, etc.
We recommend lining the pans with unbleached parchment paper when it is permissible (parchment paper is usually oven safe for use below 420F/215C but be sure to check each manufacturers guidelines).
Notwithstanding the above please note that the United States Department of Health has determined that - "aluminum levels found in processed foods and foods cooked in aluminum pots are generally considered to be safe."
Furthermore - "The FDA has determined that aluminum used as food additives and medicinals such as antacids are generally safe."
