Avoid Food Poisoning From Your Own Kitchen

Useful tips on how to avoid food poisoning at home

Food poisoning is often nasty and unpleasant, and in some cases, it might even cost you your life. In the United States, 48 million food poisoning cases are diagnosed every year, with at least five hundred being deadly. There are many things you could be doing wrong that will increase your chances of eating contaminated food and becoming poisoned.

Avoid food poisoning at home by keeping your food fresh
Freshly cooked meals and salads are sumptuous when prepared well and eaten right away.
But you have to be mindful in storing them for later use to avoid potential food poisoning.

Luckily, there are very easy measures you can take to make your food much safer for your and your family. In order to eat the best, it's not enough to eat healthy and varied meals, you also have to make sure you prepare them in a safe and clean environment.

Keep everything nice and clean

Hygiene is fundamental for food safety. A dirty cooking space will contaminate your ingredients with a variety of nasty substances you don't want to eat. Dirty surfaces and dishes are great for bacteria to proliferate and jump from one piece of food to the next. Indirect contact is one of the most frequent ways food gets contaminated in our kitchens; this is called cross-contamination.

Make sure to keep your dishes and utensils clean, so the bacteria left on the surface doesn't get transferred to food you're going to eat. Using a dishwasher instead of the sink is safer because water from the sink can splatter around and contaminate the surroundings as well as the sponge and your hands with harmful germs.

Never put cooked food on surfaces that have touched raw ingredients, or use utensils that have been in contact with potentially infected aliments. Use separate chopping boards and knives for raw and cooked foods, and if you must use the same one once and again, make sure to wash it thoroughly to prevent cross-contamination.

Fresh vegetables fried in a pan
Although cooking or frying vegetables is not necessary to kill bacteria, they should be washed
to remove germs, bugs and parasites from its surface, making them safe for consumption.

Cook everything properly

Cooking food kills bacteria and parasites that could be contained in meat and vegetables. There are many cooking methods and all of them are safe as long as they are properly carried out. Make sure to always cook meat before you eat it, and avoid pink meat since some bacteria might still be alive inside of it.

Cooking vegetables is mostly unnecessary for killing bacteria, but instead you have to wash them very consciously in order to remove germs, parasites and bugs from its surface. Remember that low temperature freezing kills parasites but doesn't kill bacteria, just deactivates their metabolism, but they will wake up as soon as the food thaws.
