FOODS

mercially

Packaging
-The secret of successful freezing is in
the packaging.
The wrap
you use must be air,
moisture and vapor proof. The way you close and seal
the package
must not allow air, moisture orvapor
in or
out. Packaging
done in any other way could cause
food
odor
and taste transfer
throughout
the re-
frigerator
and drying of frozen food.

contarners
with tight-
fitting
lids, straight-srded

jars,
heavy-duty
alumrnum foil, plastic-coated
paper
and
non-permeable
plastic
wraps
[such as Saran) are
recommended.
Note: Heat-sealed
boiling
bags are
easy to use and can be used by themselves
or as
carton
liners.

foods in bags

out the air
(liquids
need
headspace
to allow

securely around
the doubled-over
turl. Put the label
inside transparent
bags,
use self-adhesive

one-third
longer than the distance
