On weekday afternoons, I often lean in with food the night before. You might ask: Isn’t it safe to say dinner?
It cannot be said that dinner dishes are healthy or unhealthy. It is closely related to storage conditions, ingredients երի recipes. Many people worry that dinner is unhealthy because they hear that "dinner can cause cancer." The basis of nitrite production is the production of bacteria in foods. Therefore, bacterial growth must be prevented to ensure dinner safety.
Residues are stored on a temperature basis
Check the temperature first. If overnight dishes are stored at 10 or 20 degrees, bacteria will multiply rapidly, which can lead to dish rot, more pathogenic bacteria or bacterial toxins է significantly increasing nitrite content.
However, if the containers are stored at temperatures below 10°C, it is safer to leave them overnight. Although bacterial levels ակը nitrite levels may be high, they rarely reach real danger levels.
Vegetables are best not at night
Secondly, it depends on the components. Vegetables are best not at night. From a safety perspective, the ingredients that can produce nitrites are vegetables. Because vegetables contain a substance called nitrates, nitrates are not harmful at first and are good for the cardiovascular system. But under the influence of bacteria, vegetable nitrates are converted into nitrites, which cause the cancers that plague us.
Meat dishes are good at night
Try not to leave the water product overnight. In general, meat dishes are good at night. Even when it is reheated, some of the vitamin is lost, the proteins and minerals are fully preserved, the flavor does not change much. But aqueous products are different. Because protein microorganisms in aqueous products are easy to break down. Studies have shown that aquatic foods such as shrimp, crayfish, and shellfish are often contaminated with low temperature resistant microorganisms, often cooked to taste, and have short heating times Risk of pathogenic microorganisms with cold storage is produced.
The main food should be frozen for long-term storage. If you have left the rice և you cannot finish the next meal, you can cut it into small pieces և put it in the fridge. If there are leftovers such as cakes, baked goods, dumplings, or other pastas that dry out and harden easily, they should be cashed out at the same time and in storage bags or lunch boxes should be stored. is . One is refrigerated for the next day and the other is frozen. If necessary, you can remove it և use steam or directly use a microwave "melt" file.
Cold dishes depend on bacteria
Third, it depends on the method of preparation. Cold dishes such as finely chopped cabbage, chopped radishes, etc. were not heated, sterilized, and nitrates were not removed. Such components may have a negative "base" և cause bacterial overgrowth. And after the next heating, cold food will taste very unusual, so don’t keep cold food all night.
It is not recommended to store chilled meat dishes overnight, as bacteria will multiply even when stored in the refrigerator. It's not so safe if you "keep eating cold" to crave the taste of the next meal. Of course, I didn’t mind eating cold food at the first meal and reheating it properly at the second meal.
It's best to stay on what's left
Fourth, it is better to "let go" of leftovers. When food comes out of the pot, there are very few bacteria. Because cooking and heating are high temperature processes. But if you put it on the table and eat a little bit, they push it around with sticks, and saliva mixes with saliva, which is tantamount to helping to "inoculate" the bacteria. So if you’re ordering or preparing a lot of food, it’s best to put some of it aside for storage (preferably refrigerated as long as possible) and then eat other things so that the meal- to minimize exposure to bacteria.
Store in the fridge until the vegetables are cool
Fifth, it should be refrigerated immediately. If vegetables are cooked
