How do you defrost your food? The latest studies have showed that majority people are defrosting food at completely wrong way.
Susan Eksted is scientist and according to her, many people are doing huge mistake. As Susan explains, you should not leave the food in the fridge overnight in order to defrost slowly is completely wrong!
Namely, Dr. Susan says that the best way to defrost your food is to place it in cold water. On that way you will preserve the taste of the food, as the water conducts heat better than air. In fact, this is the fastest way to defrost meat and fish.
Susan says: “There has never been any good scientific evidence behind the advice that food should be thawed in the refrigerator. Maybe the idea behind this advice is that refrigerator thawing is most hygienic. It is true that meat and other foodstuffs should be stored in the refrigerator if they are thawed, but it is definitely better to thaw food quickly in water if you are going to use it right away”.
She also says that the best way to defrost meat is first to wrap the meat in a transparent foil and then to put it in cold water.
Additionally, Susan claims that people who defrost meat in a microwave also make big mistake, as this process may damage the meat. Our advice is to avoid defrosting your meat in a microwave.
