Housewives are currently storing fruits and vegetables in preparation for the holy month of Ramadan, as they resort to placing foods in the freezer to keep them for long periods of time, up to the end of the holy month.
But this does not apply to all foods, as there are a group of foods that are not recommended to be frozen in the freezer so as not to harm your body and health, and they are as follows:
According to the webteb, salad ingredients should not be frozen in the freezer because they contain large amounts of water inside, and this can cause them to be damaged and unsuitable for use.
This applies to: cucumbers, tomatoes, radishes, lettuce, celery, cauliflower, eggplant, and also potatoes, as they contain a high percentage of water, and when frozen in the freezer and thawed again, they will be soft and soft, which will lose their distinctive taste when cooked.
Fruits, such as oranges and tangerines, contain high levels of water, and when stored in the freezer, the water freezes and causes damage when thawed again.
It is not preferable to freeze yogurt, as ice accumulates on these products when placed in the freezer, and after taking it out, the ice will begin to melt forming a liquid covering the yogurt, which affects its taste and quality.
Baked and fried foods
It is not recommended to freeze baked goods, sweets and fried foods, as they lose their texture and become damp and wet.
It is also not preferable to freeze eggs, because the liquid inside them will expand, causing cracking of the shell, and making it more susceptible to bacteria, in a way that causes many health damages when eaten.
Defrosted meat should not be re-frozen after it has been removed from the freezer, because it is a breeding environment that attracts harmful bacteria. An alternative solution is to cook it, then put it in the refrigerator and eat it the next day.
