Can I refreeze fish, seafood? Will it affect the useful qualities of the product? Can the micro-organisms that are harmful to health appear in case of repeated freezing, etc.? One of the most frequently asked questions of our site http://www.fishking.sumy.ua, pages in social. networks: vkontakte - https://vk.com/fishkingsumy and https://vk.com/sumy_riba, facebook - https://www.facebook.com/fishkingsumy.
Just say: "Re-freezing fish is completely safe, if it is not lost!" We will confirm this statement with the words of Tina Haynes, a qualified nutritionist at the Food Safety Authority of the US Department of Agriculture. The idea that it is impossible to re-freeze food is a "myth". Any thawed raw or finished products can undergo secondary freezing if done correctly, that is, in the refrigerator, and not on the kitchen countertop, and if it does not deteriorate. This includes raw meat, poultry, fish and seafood, says Mrs. Haynes.
Never thaw fish and seafood,leaving them on the kitchen cabinet at room temperature or placed under a stream of warm water, she says. "Because bacteria, just like us, prefer places that are warmer, and multiply rapidly at room temperature. Defrosting on the countertop is not safe, and the point. Do not ever do that. "
Also, she adds, never freezere-wet fish if you have thawed them in a microwave or with cold water. If you left frozen foods in cold water, do not remove them from plastic packages and change the water every half hour until they are completely defrosted.
Do not let the defrosted fish take too long.be in the refrigerator before refreezing, or it will deteriorate. Spoiled food often smells bad, can be sticky or slimy to the touch. Fish, for example, need to be eaten or re-frozen after 2 days after defrosting in the refrigerator, which takes about a day.
"You can subject to secondary freezing all thatif only it was done correctly, "Mrs. Haynes said, adding that the repeated freezing of fruits, vegetables, bread and cakes, semi-finished products and other products is also completely safe.
