15 Common Kitchen Items That Are Secretly Toxic

toxic kitchen items

Aluminum foil

Aluminum foil has been around for more than 100 years and is an ideal product for wrapping and storing foods, but when aluminum leeches from foil or aluminum pans into our food, it can be potentially harmful. Sachleben cautions that risk for aluminum exposure increases when you cook acetic foods, such as tomatoes, in an aluminum pot. A study published in theInternational Journal of Electrochemical Sciencesuggests that cooking at high temperatures with acidic foods did perpetuate a greater amount of leaching of aluminum. “Follow the rules,” says Sachleben. “Don’t cook acidic foods in aluminum or store orange juice in an aluminum container.” (FYI: Theseleftover foods will without a doubt make you sick.)
