This October in the Upper Midwest, make sure that you’ve got all your frozen storage needs under control. There are a number of different products and services that require frozen storage during transit, and the team at Minnesota Freezer Warehouse Company (MFWC) is here to help.
Here are just a few important facts to know about frozen storage, specifically for food products, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA):
Proper Frozen Food Storage:
Foods that are properly frozen and stored can last much longer. That said, it’s important to make sure that you freeze the food at the right time and temperature. Freezing food does not kill bacterial growth, but it can prevent it. Just make sure that you get the freezer temperature to 0°F, and follow all storage and thawing instructions on commercially packaged foods.
Nutrients in Frozen Food:
Nutrient density or quality is not affected by the process of freezing food. That means, if you store your foods safely and properly, then you should be able to thaw and eat them with little change in the food quality. That includes proteins, which are also preserved in the freezing process!
Monitor Freezer Storage:
Freezer storage only works, though, if your freezer is working properly. That means ensuring that you have a storage space that is working properly, and managed by a professional team. The folks at MFWC are here for all of your storage needs, and will make sure to keep your food safe!
