If you think you have the best way to defrost food in no time, you should think again. Studies have shown that all of us have been defrosting food the wrong way. Scientist Susan Eksted said that what most people are doing is a big mistake. According to her, leaving the food in the fridge overnight to slowly defrost is completely wrong!
Dr. Susan claims that the best way to defrost the food is to place it in cold water, and not to acknowledge all the myths about food. This way you will preserve the taste of the food, because the water conducts heat better than air. Also this is the fastest way to defrost meat and fish.
“Scientists have long known this, as well as professional chefs, but people are not aware of this useful trick,” she says.
The best way to defrost meat, according to Susan, is to wrap the meat in a transparent foil and put it in cold water.
Exploring why people usually apply the method of defrosting the food in the refrigerator, scientists have concluded that this is probably because they believe that this is the most hygienic way.
In addition you should know that those who defrost meat in a microwave are also making a big mistake, because this process can damage the meat a lot. Even though you can use this meat to prepare many meals, you need to avoid defrosting your meat in a microwave.
