Burning Aluminum foil releases oxides that bind with the water when you smoke through it. However, the coals will not burn hot enough for this to happen, and if it did, the water would cancel it out.
Also, sounds like you got that from a site trying to sell their own brand of foil which is just a marketing ploy.
