Even this challenging situation would ease
Cooked rice kept in a refrigerator will not be tasty and eating that rice is not good. But in the night if you keep some cooked rice in water or very dilute buttermilk in a pot and eating that rice next morning as breakfast is very good for health.
In the market, we will be purchasing some frozen foods. Keeping them for long in the refrigerator may affect the quality of the food as well as the taste also. Once the packet is opened consuming the same at a time. In fact, frozen food with various chemical preservatives should not be consumed as they will have negative effects on our health.
There are some things that money just cannot buy, like manners, morals and intelligence.
While purchasing the frozen food, mark the expiry date and the same is to be consumed prior to expiry date. The best practice is to use fresh and hot food offering you awesome taste which you may not have with the frozen products.
But that is being completed frozen.
More than 90% of times the food we store is not in the freezing temperatures. We store them around 5-10 deg C. In that the case cell walls aren't destroyed. An advantage would be that microbial activity in food is the bare minimum because of decreased surrounding temperature. We must not consume the fruits or vegetables that were cool right away but wash them before eating. Microbes are still there but dormant. By thoroughly cleansing we can take care of dormant microbes.
I call the practice of eating something and storing it for later in fridge as Double dipping. Because of how we either dip the spoon or sink teeth into a food product, contaminating it. It is never advisable. No matter how best the food product is stored, once our saliva is in contact it is gradually breaking the complex sugars. That messes up the taste and nutrition makeup.
What I'm trying to say is, unless a raw food product is completely frozen it doesn't go stale. Because the cell wall isn't damaged. So it is advised to not freeze the food at sub zero temperatures for long as the nutrition is going to degrade after the puncturing of cell walls.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
Knowledge is power.
I believe in a positive attitude. I like those who criticize me.
I read in one book that the drinking of ice cold water directly from refrigerator should avoided on any circumstances as it could cause to sudden heart attack and thereby leads to death. They have told some example persons also for this.
