Is There A Science To Freezing Food?

The answer is YES!

Ok, so we won’t tiptoe around this…you’re probably freezing your foods wrong.

Not to worry. Over the next two days, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know to become a frozen foods MASTER!

Let’s cover the basics.

Why do your foods spoil?

  • It’s all about enzyme activity. Enzymes are what cause your food to go bad BUT when you place them in the freezer, the low temperature actually slows down that activity which can preserve your food longer. (yay!)


Why should you care about ice crystals forming on your food?

  • Because the larger the ice crystal, the more cellular damage is being done to your food which means it WILL spoil faster. (This isn’t Frozen people, the cold should bother you!)


How long can you store frozen foods?

  • Below is a general guideline for how long certain foods SHOULD last in the freezer.



That’s it for part 1! You’re now well on your way to becoming a frozen food master! *fist pump*
