Which aluminum foil is suitable for which product?
Depending on their thickness, aluminum foils and laminates are used for a wide range of food packaging.
Films of 10 to 12 µm are ideal for chocolates and candies, while 30-38 µm films are used in the dairy industry, for example for packaging desserts, pudding and yogurt. For marmalades and pies, however, aluminum foils of 50-70 µm are the right choice.
Due to cost reduction, the trend is currently going towards increasingly thinner aluminium foils. In the field of chocolate packaging, the thickness of the packaging alone decreased by about 30% in the last twenty years. Currently, the average thickness of chocolate foil is between 7-15 µm, less than the diameter of a human hair.
The selection of a suitable packaging film helps to protect the product optimally and to extend the minimum shelf life.
However, in the case of aluminum foil it is only guaranteed if it does not come into contact with particularly acidic or salty foods. Under the influence of acid and salt, aluminium ions dissolve and pass into the food.
It is therefore not recommended to use bare aluminum foils as packaging for the following products:
Apple sauce, stewed apples, apple purée
Sliced citrus fruits
Marinades that contain vinegar or fruit acids
Lye pastry before baking
If no Aluminum, then use a composite film.
However, laminates are well suited for packaging those products. Composite films can be used – also with aluminum. By protecting the aluminum with a plastic layer the food does not come into direct contact with the foil.
