4 Foods You Should Not Keep In The Freezer

There are just some foods you should not keep in the freezer. I have friends that think the only way to keep leftover of foods is by putting them in the freezer. God, this always makes me sick and I try every time to correct them but it just keeps repeating itself.

From bread, to fruits, vegetables and soups, they keep anything that remains of those foods in the freezer. Yes, I know cold storage is an effective way too keep and preserve foods to last longer but I can tell you it is not suitable for every type of foods.

In this article, you will see some food materials you should not freeze or even refrigerate. You will also get to know the reasons why you should not freeze them.

Foods You Should Not Keep In The Freezer And Why


Placing uncut onions in the refrigerator makes them mushy and soggy by the time you take them out. When you remove the peel, you see that there is only one thing such onion is good for — bleeding with other type of foods.

You can no longer slice and dice such onions into foods because they would have lost their traditional colour (they have different colours). So, it’s best to keep your onions in an open, cool and dry place.


It’s really an unpleasant sight when you bring out a frozen watermelon out of the freezer. Aprt from the fact that it no longer looks good, the flesh becomes fibrous and not easy to bite.

If you have ever tried eating a frozen watermelon that was thawed, you would know that such watermelon lose their kind of crunchy texture. They become fibrous and tough in the mouth. Also, research have shown that keeping them at room temperature might even help preserve the antioxidants present.
