What’s the difference between the different sides of tin foil?

One side is shiny and one side isn’t. I’ve read recipes that specifically say to use one side or the other.

What is the difference??

    It doesn’t matter what side you use. This was printed in the Washington Post…

    Household aluminum foil is so thin (0.0005 of an inch) that the rollers can’t handle it without tearing it. The final rolling is therefore done on a sandwich of two sheets, face to face. The outer surfaces emerge with a finish as smooth as the rollers, while the two face-to-face inner surfaces emerge with a matte finish. Hence, a shiny side and a duller side. When you use the foil, it makes no difference which side is up, down or sideways.
