Health Tip: Freezing Food
Here's how to do it safely

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Freezing food helps avoid the growth of germs, allowing perishables to last longer than if they were refrigerated.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these suggestions for freezing food safely:

  • Make sure your freezer is set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit or below. Confirm the temperature with an appliance thermometer.
  • While you can freeze just about anything except canned foods or eggs in shells, some foods (such as lettuce, cream sauces or mayonnaise) may not maintain quality.
  • Store food in freezer-safe bags, heavy plastic containers or heavyweight aluminum foil.
  • Date and label foods before storing in the freezer. Use older foods before newer ones to help thwart freezer burn.
