4 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
The plants will pick up what is needed safely and the water should contain nothing toxic.
After all the water (rain) constantly cleans off the roof and lets face it, plants grow in actual dirt. You are to be congratulated on using a rainbarrel to save the municipal water supply.
