5 Important Food Products That Should Not Keep in the Freezer…Know in detail…What to Keep in and What Not
Many of us tend to buy and store large amounts of food and goods when they are available cheaply. However, in the post-corona period, the habit of buying and storing has increased among many people.
Accordingly, various companies are manufacturing and supplying fridge freezers with large storage space. Due to this, people buy everything they need in large quantities and put it in the freezer. However, many people are not clear about what items should and should not be put in the freezer. So let’s know in detail about the products that can be stored in the freezer.
Never store fruit in the fridge. Also, don’t put it in a tray near the freezer. If they’re frozen in ice, we don’t get any of the nutrients we need from fruit. Similarly, the taste of the upper parts of the fruit also changes. Raisins, figs, oranges etc can be kept in the freezer if desired.
We buy milk in liters in our homes. But most people keep it in a tray at the bottom of the freezer. But since it is below the freezer, milk and dairy products freeze easily. Eating these is more likely to cause various health problems. So make sure not to keep them in the freezer for too long.
We have seen some people keep fried items and cereals in the fridge. So although there is no danger, the crunchy taste of those ingredients is completely lost. Also, do not cook immediately after taking it out of the freezer. The ingredients should be used for cooking and eating after coming to room temperature.
Foods like bagged coffee and noodles should never be kept in the freezer. Placing a packet of coffee powder in the freezer will change its taste. No smell. If you put in instant coffee powder, it’s too small. It freezes. Freezes..becomes useless. Similarly, the noodles products kept in the freezer will cool down and become soft. Can’t even use it.
Sauces are prevalent in various Indian cuisines today. Cooking is not complete without tomato sauce and chili sauce. That’s why many people have the habit of buying a bottle of sauce and storing it in the fridge. But, refrigerating sauces does not extend their shelf life. So keeping it in the freezer is of no use. If it is kept in the freezer for more than that, there is a possibility that the mixed ingredients will separate and become a health hazard.
Apart from the items mentioned above, here are the items to keep in the freezer. Greens, fiber-rich cauliflower, bell peppers, meats, turmeric, salted fish can be liberally kept in the freezer. Similarly, many people pre-grind ginger-garlic and store it in the freezer. Vacate within 7 days if possible. There is no benefit in using those products beyond that.
