    7 Foods that You Must Stop Reheating!

    https://food.ndtv.com/food-drinks/7-...t-away-1720284


    Do Not reheat too often the following Foods:...............

    1. Vegetables with High Amounts of Nitrates

    If you have
    spinach or any green leafy vegetables, carrot, turnip or even celery, avoid reheating them in the microwave. These nitrate rich vegetables when heated again can turn toxic, releasing carcinogenic properties, which are generally cancerous in nature. Spinach contains high amount of iron, hence heating and reheating spinach may oxidize the iron present in spinach. Oxidation of iron generates dangerous free radicals which are known to cause many diseases including infertility and cancer.

    2. Rice
    You may be surprised, but rice comes under this category too. According to Foods Standards Agency (FSA), you could suffer from food poisoning by eating reheated rice. This is due to the presence of highly resistant bacteria called Bacillus Cereus. Heat kills these bacteria, but it can produce spores that are toxic in nature.
    Once rice is reheated and is left out at room temperature, any spores it contains can multiply, further causing food poisoning on consumption.

    3. Eggs

    We all know,
    eggs are a rich source of protein, however, cooked egg or boiled egg can cause serious harm when exposed to heat again and again. Once you have cooked eggs, eat them immediately but if it is kept for a longer period, don't reheat, rather just eat cold because high protein food contains lot of nitrogen. This nitrogen may get oxidised due to reheating, further causing cancer.

    4. Chicken

    You would know, piping hot chicken does taste so delectable, however, if you are saving the curry for the next day, do remember to not heat it again and again. The protein composition in this staple completely changes when it is taken out of the refrigerator to heat.

    This can cause problems in the digestive system. Make sure you are not heating it on high temperature.

    5. Potatoes


    Potatoes being a staple are the best and easiest to store, reheat and consume. Unfortunately, you would need to think again. Potatoes are a rich source of vitamin B6, potassium and vitamin C,
    however, if they are reheated again and again, chances are they might produce Clostridium Botulinum (bacteria causing Botulism). Even if you leave the cooked potatoes out in room temperature, the production of bacteria will only increase. So if you want to avoid the growth of bacteria, best is to keep them refrigerated or throw them away if not being consumed within 1-2 days.

    6. Mushroom

    It is recommended to eat
    mushrooms as soon they are prepared. Ideally, they shouldn't be stored to consume next day as it is a powerhouse of proteins and have generous amounts of minerals and
    by reheating them, you are breaking these proteins further, causing havoc in your digestive system. Hence heating them will generate toxins which contains oxidized nitrogen and free radicals. Even if you are keen on storing mushrooms for the next day, make sure you eat them cold.

    7. Cold Pressed Oil

    One of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acid is cold pressed oil like flaxseed oil, olive oil and canola oil. Omega-3 fat is very sensitive to temperature as it
    breaks and becomes rancid above 40 degree centigrade. Therefore, never heat cold pressed oil before consumption.



    Am Also Guilty of reheating, never knew it was causing All these Maladies!.......

      OK to reheat if you do it right:

      Banda Karey tu Yeh Karey Ji .....

      Can you reheat food twice?
      Kitchen Fact:

      While food can be safely reheated multiple times,

      the quality decreases each time.

      Reheat only what you plan to eat.

      As long as you reheat the leftovers to at least 165?F each time,

      the food's technically safe to eat.Jul 31, 2015...........
