Aluminium foil packages are safe in microwave ovens

Thursday 22 November 2007

Microwave heating of food in packaging solutions containing aluminium foil is perfectly viable. The operation is safe, if some simple rules are followed.followed. Heating results are similarly satisfying with packages containing aluminium foil as with plastic packages. However, heating patterns are quite different and require careful product development. Packages with aluminium foil are therefore a viable option for microwaveable foods and should not be neglected, if new food products are developed. In specific applications like combination heating, they may offer a real advantage.
