This article will cover how to buy frozen meat, what to look for at the grocery store and most importantly, how to tell if frozen meat is fresh or not.
It’s Challenging, but it’s Doable
It’s a common problem: you don’t have time to go shopping or you don’t live near a super market, so you need to buy meat that can be stored in the freezer. This meat is usually very expensive, and you aren’t sure if it is fresh or not.
Buying fresh meat in the grocery store can be confusing. Meat producers and sellers want to get you to buy their products, but they aren’t always honest about how they do it. As a savvy consumer, it’s important to know how to read labels and understand what they mean.
The Freshness Test
One simple way that can help you identify whether the meat is fresh or not is by looking at its color. Oftentimes, fresh meats have this vibrant red color compared and a firm texture when touch. By doing this simple check, you can almost immediately tell if you should buy that meat or not.
