I use steamer every day to prepare my meals. I usually wrap the ingredients (mostly vegetables and chopped meat) with aluminum foil in order to keep them all in one place and to avoid melted fat trickling through holes. However I’ve heard that this is considered unhealthy as aluminum can enter the food and poison your body. Therefore I’ve two question to ask:
Should I actually be worried about this…? I believe that temperature used in steam cooking is not as high as inside ovens, so maybe I can simply continue to use foil as before?
If I in fact should stop using aluminum foil then what good replacement for it could be used inside a steamer? Some kind of a casserole dish, perhaps?
