Defrosting and storage
« on: September 13, 2010, 10:59:40 pm »
Hi guys,

I think I read somewhere on this site that some people struggle when eating raw meat that has been defrosted after freezing. Or it may have been that they left it a while after defrosting, and then ate it.

Is this the case?

I am aware that freezing is detrimental to the nutritional content of the food, but do many of you eat raw meat that has been frozen?

Also, the meat that I get comes packaged in air tight plastic wrapping. I store it in the fridge.

I think I read somewhere on the site that there was an issue with leaving raw meat in plastic containers with lids in the fridge (Botulism was mentioned,).
Could I have similar issues with my meat packaged and stored as described?

Leaving it in the fridge for a week is fine, even if wrapped. Not a good idea, IMO, for longer periods, unless it's put in the freezer.

Since freezing destroys cell-membranes thus speeding nutrient-loss after thawing, it is imperative to eat prefrozen meats as soon as they are thawed. Putting part of the meat back into the freezer is not a good idea.
