A good place to store leftovers | If you cook too much, or the many remaining party dishes, there are certain types of food that can be stored and eaten on tomorrow, and there is also a good idea to spend time or had to be discarded.
"Disease-causing Bacteria can grow in certain foods within two hours in room temperature," said Jacqueline Gomes, a registered dietitian in New Jersey to FoxNews. "Like a fruit salad or vegetable, and any form of processed vegetable, good news soon."
Gomes stressed, allowing the processed fruit and vegetable in room temperature for many hours, it can increase the amount of bacteria.
When processed are stored for tomorrow, in addition to nutrients, vegetables and fruit contaminated bacteria can cause illness due to contaminated food, such as nausea, diarrhea, even food poisoning.
Gomes says, in addition to the processed fruit and vegetables, you can keep other leftovers. It's just, every type of food has a time limit, namely:
- Processed meat and fish: up to 2 days in refrigerator.
- Processed eggs: 3 days in the refrigerator.
- Processed seafood: 2 days in the refrigerator.
- Hard Cheese: 3-4 weeks in the refrigerator.
In accordance with the recommendation of the U.S. Department of agriculture (USDA), leftovers should be heated to above 75 degrees Celsius before being stored in the refrigerator, or when wanting to eat again.
