Most people freeze foods to use later / when needed. Meat, vegetables, fruits, cakes, pastries, bread and other foods are most often frozen. It is most desirable to consume foods within the deadline, although this is sometimes impossible. Experts say the best temperature for freezing food is -18 ° C. Food should be packed in a bag with as little air as possible in the bag. Put a sticker on the food bag with the freeze date. Depending on the type of food packaged, it also depends on how long the food can stay in the freezer without becoming a health hazard and losing its quality. If the food is frozen fresh after the thawing process, it will certainly be better than the food that was fresh but at the end of its deadline/shelf life. The freezing process does not destroy the nutritional value of the food.
After thawing food- first what you should do is to check the smell of thawed food. If the smell is unpleasant, the food has been in the freezer for a long time so don’t use it.
