Does aluminum foil flavor food?

In the fridge or freezer? Pizza, meat? Taste bad?

I've never noticed the cold side of it, but we cook on aluminum foil a lot - grill, broiler, toaster oven, etc. I've never noticed any strange flavoring from the hot side.

It's okay so long as you don't put any acidic food in it. The same thing is true with aluminum pans.

I think if you eat things that are wrapped in foil (like a burrito, etc), just a touch to your mouth, and you get metallic. But I don't think they taint the food, per se. kj.

Disturbingly, several family meatloaf recipes seem to melt aluminum foil at the points where the foil comes into contact with the loaf; this is after the loaf has been baked once and refridgerated using foil as a wrapper.

I always remove those bits (usually the foil is suspended over a pan and gets bent down in a couple of contact spots at worst) and eat the rest.

I would think those spots where the foil has been subsumed by the meat taste different; but the people I know who eat them can never seem to remember! (I though medical evidence at one time indicated that aluminum was an indicator for alzheimers.)

Don't worry Gabester, aluminum has a melting point of 1220°F

And the alzheimers/ aluminum foil link turned out to be invalid (at least no evidence ever found to support it).

Tomato products and aluminum pans a no-no. Foil wrapped baby-back ribs covered with spice rub are something different. These will be consumed during the Laker-Orlando game in about 5 hours from now. No leftovers to freeze.

I'm having grilled salmon as the Lakers roll.

I think aluminum cans flavor carbonated beverages.

The interior of soda cans, as well as those used for food, are coated.

Actually, I think so too. They taste better out of glass bottles. kj.
