frozen food



  • Particular foods, made-up or partially made-up dishes which have been frozen to –20°C and which can be stored for a least 6 weeks and generally much longer. It is generally stated that once defrosted, frozen foods cannot be refrozen but there is no justification for this rule providing the period at greater than 0°C is less than an hour. Frozen foods have generally been prepared for use prior to freezing.


  • noun food stored at a temperature below freezing point
