Microwave is a modern kitchen appliance

It's hard to imagine a modern kitchen without a microwave. It's not just for heating food, but also for cooking independent dishes. However, there are foods that can be dangerous when microwaved.

Today, the FoodOboz editorial team shares five foods that should never be microwaved.

Foods that cannot be heated in the microwave - sausages and ham

Sausage, sausages, ham

These products usually contain additives to keep food fresh for longer. When heated in the microwave, such substances oxidize, which is life-threatening.

Chili peppers

Product that is not heated in the microwave - chili peppers

When heated, all the substances that make chili peppers hot are released to the outside. Steam is generated in the environment, which can irritate the eyes and throat.

Boiled eggs

A product that is not heated in the microwave - eggs

When eggs are heated in the microwave, a steamy effect, similar to that of a pressure cooker, is created inside the egg. As a result, the egg explodes. But you can heat ready-made egg dishes if the product is cut into pieces.

Dairy products

Do not heat fermented milk products in the microwave

All fermented milk products contain natural bacteria. All of them will die in the microwave. As a result, the product will begin to curdle and lose its flavor.

Honey

Honey is not heated in the microwave

Honey hardens during crystallization. In this state, it is inconvenient to eat, so you need to heat it up. This should not be done in the microwave, because all the beneficial qualities contained in this product are immediately lost. To make honey liquid, you can heat it in a water bath. But make sure that the water is not too hot - 40-50 degrees.
