To make sure defrosted food is as fresh, nutritious and tasty as before freezing it, there are certain rules to follow. For example:
- Food should always be frozen at the peak of its ripeness/freshness;
- Some types of food do not freeze well, such as eggs in shell or potatoes;
- Liquids expand in cold temps, so it’s important to leave enough room in the container when freezing beverages, etc.
