You have unfrozen meat for the rest of your life: the easiest way to defrost any food
Defrosting (from de ... and English frost - frost) is the process of defrosting (thawing) of food products before consuming or producing new products from them. Usually frozen food is stored at temperatures: frozen products -18 ° С, deep-frozen products -26 ... -36 ° С.
The methods and modes of defrosting depend on the type of food and its use. For example, frozen meat is thawed in cells with high relative humidity, and the fish are thawed in baths with water or brine at a temperature of 15 ... 20 ° C or in installations with continuous circulation of liquid. A method for defrosting by heating food with high frequency currents has been developed. Machines that produce defrosting are called defroster.
If you think you have a better way to defrost food in the shortest time, you should think again. Studies have shown that we all thawed the food in the wrong way. Scientist Susan Ecksted says that what most people do to defrost is a big mistake.
Dr. Susan argues that the best way to defrost food is to put them in cold water. Thus, you will maintain the taste of food, because water conducts heat better than air. In addition, it is the fastest way to thaw meat and fish.
"Scientists, as well as professional chefs have known this for a long time, but people do not know this useful trick"
The best way to defrost the meat, according to Susan - wrap the meat in a transparent film and put it in cold water .
The study, which examined why people tend to use the method of defrosting food in a refrigerator, concluded that this is probably because they believe that this is the most hygienic way.
In addition, you should be aware that those who defrost the meat in the microwave oven also make a big mistake, because this process of defrosting with microwave radiation can damage the meat . Even if you can use this meat for cooking, you need to avoid meat thawing in the microwave.
