Food kept in a refrigerator remains fresh for some days. Germs do not grow easily in cool places.
By this method, we can preserve food for a short period of time. Germs in milk are killed by pasteurization.
We can add salt to preserve pickles and fish.
Excess sugar in food also acts as a preservative. We store food for a long time in the form of jams, jellies, and murabbas by adding sugar.
In this method, the food items are dried in sun to stop the growth of bacteria in them. Certain foods, like raw mangoes, fishes, potato chips and papads are preserved by this method.
