There are a few things to keep in mind before you deep-fry food in the microwave.
Keep leftover food in the deep freezer for several weeks. Now you think let’s melt the ice and enjoy the fun food.
However, if the microwave is chosen for heating food, caution is required.
According to Janelin Hutchings, a professional food safety consultant and food scientist registered with the State Food safety in the United States, “Keep in mind that refrigerated food should be kept fresh 24 hours a day.”
He added in a report published on Itdis.com, “It is better to sprinkle cold water on the food but it takes about 20 to 30 minutes. And its temperature should be below 5 degrees Celsius.”
In a hurry? However, microwave oven defrost settings can be used to heat food frozen, he said.
Advanced microwaves have a system for heating food by weight. Heating the food accordingly maintains the quality and removes the cold.
If the amount of food is less, it can be cooked and heated. For example- small pieces of meat.
Storing food in the fridge is the only way in modern life. Many people think that food does not get infected by germs when it is frozen in ice. But the matter is not right.
According to Felicia W. U., Professor of Michigan State University of Food Safety, Toxicology and Risk Assessment.”Many people think that the bacteria in food made at room temperature can be destroyed by the refrigerator. Unfortunately, this is a misconception.”
Felicia W. U. also said”Many food-borne germs can survive in the refrigerator, Later, if it is not cooked properly, it can cause serious damage.”
Before heating food in the microwave, it is important to consider whether plastic can be used in it. This is because there is a lot of plastic that loses or breaks in heat.
Again, the chemicals in the plastic can be mixed with the food during heating. One is bisphenol A, which is known as A (BPA).
That is why many plastic containers are now written (BPA) free.
Still Felicia W. U. advised to be careful.
Some studies have shown that BPA-free plastics are also risky to use in the microwave.
That’s why the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends not using plastic containers in the microwave other than containers labeled”safe.”
