Firstly I would like to say that you should never put any of the following foods in the fridge as in most cases it will damage the food or impair its flavour, but saying that with some of them there are exceptions and it all comes down to personal preference, of course.
What I will say is that if you want to get the best taste and flavour from your food then it is best not to put the following foods into the refrigerator. By following some of the tips you will enjoy your food a lot more and reap the benefits of its flavour.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my list of ten foods that you should never put in the fridge.
We all do it don't we? We put our chocolate in the fridge to stop it melting or to make it solid and chunky to the bite. Well, we should not, because it impairs the flavour of the chocolate. Room temperature is best for chocolate; however, if your room temperature is over 20 degrees then the fridge may be your best option.
This is a biggy for me because I always used to come home from the supermarket and bang them straight into the fridge. However, tomatoes need warmth and their flavours thrive on sun rays. I did a test and ate a tomato from the fridge and one from my veg rack. The difference was unbelievable. The one from the rack had ten times more flavour. Putting them in the fridge kills their natural flavour and turns the texture into an icy mush. Try the test like me and you won't be disappointed; I never put my tomatoes in the fridge now.
Some packet coffee recommends putting the packet in the fridge, but with instant coffee it is a definite no-no. Coffee absorbs aromas and flavours from all the other foods in the fridge, which in turn kills its own aroma and flavour. Even packet coffee, once opened, gains no benefits from refrigeration.
