Refrigeration is one of the 20th Century’s most game-changing inventions – but did you know there are actually some foods you should never keep in the fridge?
Fridges are now in every single kitchen but they weren’t domestically available to mass consumers until 1927. After that, their popularity skyrocketed as people flocked to purchase these food-saving creations- and by the time 1944 rolled around, 85% of American homes had one!
Before fridges existed, people resorted to a variety of measures to try and preserve their food, including holes in the ground, wooden caskets, and cellars. Some villages even had community cooling houses where meat and fruit was stored and salt was commonly used as a preservative.
Though the fridge is an unarguably great invention, not many are aware that it can be downright dangerous to chill some specific foods – and it can totally spoil the taste of others, or make them go bad faster. Discover the foods that rot quickly or taste absolutely awful when they’ve been refrigerated, as well as the ones that become hazardous to your health – as we reveal the top 12 foods you should never ever store in the fridge!
