You make a big pot of food, sauces and even pasta and eat too much at once. So, what to do with the leftovers? If stored properly, you can consume them for the next few days.
Packaging materials for frozen foods protect the flavour, colour, moisture and nutritional value of food from the harsh climate inside the freezer.
Using an inappropriate container can provide insufficient protection to your food and reduce the quality of the product. It's not a good idea to use a container that can't withstand freezing temperatures to keep leftovers in the refrigerator and eat them a few days later.
In general, containers or packaging materials that may freeze in the refrigerator must have the following characteristics:
|BPA Free||BPA is a harmful, toxic chemical found in most plastic products. It has been linked to causing immune problems as well as reproductive and neurological problems. So it is important to choose a container that does not contain BPA.|
|Durable||Having a durable container made of stable materials will ensure your container won't bend, deform or crack in cooler temperatures. Good material can also be used to store food at room temperature, in refrigerator and freezer. And do a good job of food preservation.|
|Airtight, leak-proof||By placing produce in airtight containers, you will help keep them fresher than leaving them in their box/bag. This help preserves the flavour of your food and helps slow or prevent freezer burn.|
|Dishwasher-safe||The added bonus of dishwasher-safe containers will make your cleanup process more efficient.|
|Reusable||We humans generate a sufficient amount of product waste in landfills and it is important to use reusable containers and limit the amount of waste generated.|
|Odours resistant||Choose something that doesn't absorb odors so leftovers don't smell like old leftovers, and containers that resist odors, stains, and lingering flavors is easy to clean and maintain.|
|Oven-safe||If your food in the container is frozen, it's a big bonus if the container is oven safe. Oven-safe containers can be a game-changer for freezer meal prep. Once your items are frozen, you can easily heat up the food directly from the frozen state in the same container.|
