Freezing and storing food
Storage time for frozen food
The storage life of food is very variable,
even at a constant temperature of
-18 °C. Decomposition processes also
take place in frozen food, albeit at a
very reduced speed. For example fat
can become rancid from contact with
oxygen in the air. This is why lean meat
can be stored approx. twice as long as
fatty meat.
The storage times quoted are guide val-
ues for the storage life of different food
groups in the freezer section.
Food group
Ice cream
Bread, baked goods
Fish, oily
Fish, lean
Sausage, ham
Game, pork
Poultry, beef
Vegetables, fruit
Where the storage time given on the
packaging differs, follow the advice on
the packaging.

ent ways:
