Правила размораживания пищи

Defrosting (from de ... and English. Frost - frost) is the process of thawing (thawing) food products before consuming or developing new products from them. Typically, frozen food is stored at temperatures: frozen products -18 ° C, deep-frozen products -26 ... -36 ° C.

The methods and modes of defrosting depend on the type of food and its use. For example, frozen meat is thawed in chambers with high relative air humidity, and fish is thawed in bathtubs with water or brine at a temperature of 15 ... 20 ° C or in installations with continuous liquid circulation. A method has been developed for defrosting food by high-frequency currents by heating food. Defrosting machines are called defrosters.
