The scientists and PR people that work for the compaines will say yes ( so will tobacco companies engage in the same tactics, as will the people working in the cell phine industry) but, aluminum entering food in a elemental form that is non colloidal or angstom in nature, has a toxic effect (considered heavy metals by most detox specilaists).
If that isn't enough the residual petrochmical oils used in the manufactureing process aren't exactly "non-toxic." The there is the toxic aspect of cooked food as well.
Triple whammy from my perspective.
Sorry can't give you any alternative tips. Unless your considering living raw foods;-)
just oil a potatoe with a good oil and bake it.
I use potatoes, I steam them til tender but still crisp
and make a potatoe soup or salad from that.
I eat raw foods as well..and certainly fruits.
great raw boosts high in oxygen btw are cabbage, brussel sprouts,
and broccoli. I love homemade coleslaw with a bare bit of apple cider vinegar,
and you can always make a healthy dip if you want for raw broccoli.
If you are camping out and grilling, why not slice your potatoe,
and brush a bit of good oil on it and grill wedges?
there are alternatives use your imagination *) play around and discover
btw baking soda is full of aluminum..
I use only aluminum free baking soda.
This fact alone means that most breaded foods you eat or that
use baking soda also are full of aluminum.
So do stay aware of why it is important to detox metals from your
body. many so called better deli fast food places have aluminum
coating on the subs/hoagies as a preservative.
Canned foods are very high in aluminum.
Yea, the baking powder (baking soda = no aluminum) thing is off my diet list.
Trying to keep everything minimalist because we have to carry everything to the camp site, and food can usually be wrapped in foil before the trip. We'll probably do a bonfire with coals like Lapis mentioned.
Unfortunately we are not going to be in Hawaii... maybe some local oak or poison ivy leaves would do the trick... :O
