Freezing fresh food
Fresh food should be frozen as quickly
as possible. This way the nutritional
value of the food, its vitamin content,
appearance and taste are not impaired.
Food which takes a long time to freeze
will lose more water from its cells which
During the defrosting process only
some of this water is reabsorbed by the
cells. The rest collects around the food.
In practice this means that the food
loses a large degree of its moisture.
If food is frozen quickly the cells have
less time to lose moisture so they shrink
As there is not so much moisture it is
easier for the food to reabsorb it during
the defrosting process.
