Whether it’s Friday night and you need to clean out your fridge, or you want to turn your leftovers from last night into a whole new meal, our microwaves are our handy kitchen companions. In practice, warming up food is something we all do. However, not all food is suitable for reheating.
Throwing food away is a huge waste, so what do you do with it? You put it in a plastic container in the fridge or freezer to reheat the food later. Microwaves are very useful in the kitchen when we need to heat food fast. But, researchers claim that heating some foods can actually be very dangerous especially if you haven’t stored them properly.
It may be hard to believe that some healthy foods, when reheated, may be a potential health hazard, but these healthy foods lose their nutrients after being warmed up again. If you are already used to heating up your leftovers, remember that this is not always the healthiest option for some foods.
There are prepared foods that can release toxins if we heat them up again at high temperatures. Because not everyone is aware of which foods are involved, on the next page we have made a list of the four foods that we’d better not reheat so as not to damage the health. Especially number 3 you NEVER need to warm up again!
