Aluminum foil leaching out when thawing food

Supposedly, while refrigerating food in aluminum foil is OK, freezing and thawing it in aluminum foil is not, because the thawing process can cause aluminum to begin leaching into the food?

Is it that moisture condenses while the foil and food is thawing, and some dissolved aluminum leaches out? But if aluminum leaches out that easily, you'd expect acidic or salty foods to leach it as well
