Myths About Frozen Foods You Should Stop Believing

frozen food in fridge

While the freezer is known for storing some of our favourite delicious treats, it’s also a terrific place to store nutritious meals and snacks to defrost and enjoy at any time. 

Many people consider frozen foods to have a lot of preservatives, salt, and fat. This is just not true. In this post, we have listed some of the most popular myths and misconceptions about frozen food

Now, let’s bust some myths!

 

Myth 1: Fresh foods are better for you than frozen ones

It is not true that fresh foods are better than frozen ones. This is because fresh food also needs to be packaged, shipped, and stored. It may take days or even more than a week from when it is first packaged to cooked. 

During this period of time, the food loses nutrients. On the contrary, frozen food is flash-frozen when it is at its most nutritious peak. This keeps all of the nutrients in the food.

 

 

Myth 2: All frozen food has a lot of sodium

Many of us would agree with this. After all, many frozen foods weren’t the ideal representation of healthy meals a decade or more ago. 

But today, food producers have successfully developed food products that satisfy the needs of health-conscious consumers. 

In other words, they are producing a large number of low-calorie, low-sodium frozen foods that are rich in veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins. 

 

 

Myth 3: Eggs cannot be frozen

It is true that shell eggs cannot be frozen. The shell is likely to crack as the egg swells when frozen. When it thaws, you’ll be left with quite a mess. 

However, you don’t have to freeze your eggs in their shells. If you bought too many or your backyard hen produced too many for your family, crack the eggs and combine the yolk and whites. They can then be frozen for later use. 

 

 

Myth 4: Frozen food costs more money

When compared to food delivery or takeout, packaged freezer food is often a lot cheaper. This is because a delivery fee is often required for food delivery. 

Moreover, most restaurants’ food prices are the same for both dine-in and takeout. Thus, ordering takeout will definitely cost more when compared with packaged freezer food. 

 
 

Myth 5: Freezing helps to prevent bacteria from growing

Even though the temperatures are lower, frozen food might still contain bacteria. When storing food in the freezer, remember that food safety concerns still apply. 

Wash your hands, use clean surfaces, and avoid cross-contamination to keep your food safe now and in the future. 

Furthermore, frozen food should be thawed in the fridge instead of on the counter or in the sink so that bacteria doesn’t grow after thawing.    

 

Myth 6: Frozen food expires

You shouldn’t be surprised to see frozen maize or strawberries from your last holidays in your parents’ freezer. Food can be stored eternally as long as it is kept at 0°F or lower the entire time. 

However, because most people aren’t great at properly keeping food in the freezer, there is a window of time when food is at its best.

 

Myth 7: All frozen food is highly processed

This may have been true once upon a time. Frozen food that is near to its natural state is now easily available in the frozen area in almost all grocery stores. 

The truth is many food companies have found ways to freeze their food products without using those unnecessary ingredients such as sodium. 

In fact, freezing is an excellent preservation technique that retains the nutrients in the food. 

 

Myth 8: Food can be frozen immediately after purchasing

Most foods, believe it or not, benefit from good storage procedures before they go into the freezer. 

For example, if you intend to freeze vegetables, blanch them beforehand to avoid freezing watery veggies, which can result in freezer burn or sogginess when thawed. 

When it comes to meat, the best course of action is to remove it from its original packaging and store it in a freezer-safe bag. This prevents bacteria from growing in the original plastic packaging.

 

In a Nutshell

Now that you know the truth about the frozen food myths, are you excited to check out your favourite frozen food such as frozen dim sum and halal frozen finger food in the frozen food section on your next grocery store trip? 

Remember to read the labels, store your food properly, and enjoy your thawed-out meals with family and friends.
