Why You're Storing Frozen Food Wrong



This may come as quite a surprise, but the temperature of your freezer could matter for more than just that ice cream that lingered too long.


The reason why it brought us to blog about this, is because more often than not, we receive feedback about our products that has gone bad. And 90% of the time, it is attributed to poor storage conditions.


So, what is the proper temperature to store frozen items? Make a guess, before scrolling down for the answer

Now, did you know at Lion Dance Brand, our freezer is kept at -24° C to ensure the best shelf and quality is delivered every time.


Most people store chilled food at the correct temperature - 0 °C (or do you? 😅) But you probably store frozen stuff at the wrong temperature! I have. Food that is properly frozen and cooked is safe. Food that is properly handled and stored in the freezer at 0° F (-18° C) will remain safe. While freezing does not kill most bacteria, it does stop bacteria from growing.


Another misconception of freezing is that nutrients are compromised. Freezing does not reduce nutrients. There is little change in a food's protein value during freezing.


Freezer burn does not mean the food is unsafe. Freezer burn is a food-quality issue, not a food safety issue. It appears as grayish-brown leathery spots on frozen food. It can occur when food is not securely wrapped in air-tight packaging and causes dry spots in food.


So, keep our meatballs in their vacuum pack in a freezer until you are ready to eat them. And this will ensure that you will get perfect quality Lion Dance Brand meatballs every time 🥰


Time to check your freezer temperature now folks ❄️
