A common question that we sometimes get involves cold storage and food. In particular, individuals have wanted to know what types of food can be stored in a cold room. Let’s take a moment to answer this question and provide you with several options offered by MTCSS.
Food That Can Be Stored in A Cold Room
Consider your fridge for a moment. What is the interior temperature? When it comes to cold room freezer storage, a lot has to do with the temperature. If kept above freezing but cold enough to slow down bacterial growth, then the majority of food out there will be able to be stored in a cold room. You may want to consider separate cold storage rooms if you have products that are capable of absorbing the flavours of things around them. For example, basil is commonly not put in cold rooms with other food because it absorbs the flavour of everything around it.
As there are only a few categories of food that should not be stored in a cold room, let us list them. Tropical and subtropical fruit will commonly not do well in a walk in cold room. This includes things like avocadoes, and bananas. In addition, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, melons, and garlic all are known to do poorly in colder temperatures. Honey, bread, and fresh herbs will also do poorly in cold storage rooms. Storing these items in a cold room will affect the texture of the food.
