Best Answer

There are three types of frozen foods. 1) food that is frozen slowly.

2) food that is flash frozen. This food is frozen faster to preserve the texture and best flavors, normally done to vegetables.

3) Snap frozen foods. This is any food dipped into liquid nitrogen. It is super cold and if you drop or bend the food, it will snap or shatter like glass.

What is the difference between fresh and frozen food?

The difference is that fresh food has just been harvested - or has gotten to market as quickly as possible after harvest - without being frozen or cooked. It might be minimally processed - as in packaged salad greens. Frozen food is just that - has been frozen after harvest. Now, if you are referring to the nutritional differences, vegetables start to lose nutritional value after harvesting. Frozen vegetables are generally processed right after harvesting and retain a lot of the original value. Sometimes it can be hard to tell just how long it has been since the 'fresh' veggies were harvested that are in your grocer's produce aisle. Make sure you purchase your fresh vegetables from vendors who have a lot of sales that result in frequent turnover of stock.

If chop meat was frozen then cooked can it be refrozen?
