Is It Safe For Food That Is Stored In The Refrigerator For 1 Month?
Hello, r n r nI want to ask, when the family-in-law held a download for in-laws on April 29, there were still many catering food left u0026amp; put in the fridge freezer. Until now, it still likes to be consumed warmed first. The question is, is food that is put in the refrigerator freezer for more than 1 month safe for consumption again? Given that I have sensitive digestion u0026amp; I often get stomachaches when consuming these foods. r nThank you
Thank you for the question.
Basically, the freezer or refrigerator is designed to store food so it doesn't spoil easily. Not easy to rot here does not mean it cannot rot. So, the food will still rot just more slowly. The freezer will slow down the growth process of putrefactive bacteria. If the food is in factory packaging, it will be easier to know when the food will rot or can no longer be consumed from the expiration date listed on the packaging. However, in home cooking, it is difficult to know whether the food is still suitable for consumption or not. Basically, home food stored in the freezer must use the first in first out principle and not open the lid of the package. However, this also cannot confirm how the growth of bacteria in it.
It is said that food will be safe in the freezer under the following conditions:
below a temperature of 4 degrees celsius
Leftover food stored in the freezer immediately
separate raw food from cooked food in the freezer
Other conditions that can affect storage in the freezer are refrigerators with fluctuating temperatures or frequently opened and closed. In this condition, it can also be affected by the fluctuating voltage or power outages when food is stored in the freezer. Plus, fridge freezers combine with other foodstuffs.
Other studies suggest that food that is stored in the freezer for too long will reduce its nutrient and mineral content, so you should not consume food that has been stored in the freezer for too long.
Diseases that can attack the body that come from food such as:
The suggestions that I can give for the prevention of infection from food:
wash hands before preparing food and after
keep the kitchen clean
cover food to prevent flies or other insects or mice
cook the food until it is completely cooked
heating food before consumption
if you are going to store food, it should be stored separately between raw and cooked foods including vegetables and fruit
do not consume unpasteurized milk
do not consume water that has not been cooked
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
