Can you Refreeze Something that has been Defrosted?

CoolCookery 0666

Each frozen food product is different. When handling commercially frozen products, your first port of call should be to check the packaging instructions.

A product’s packaging instructions will give you guidelines on defrosting and refreezing. Generally, you can refreeze frozen food when it has been cooked. However, the food structure will likely hold up less well once a product has been refrozen. The food might also have a soggier consistency. This is because freezing food at home is slow, meaning that the food will hold more water.
