Question

Which of the following methods is not used in the preservation of foods


  1. Drying

  2. Moisturization

  3. Heating

  4. Refrigeration


Solution

The correct option is D

Refrigeration


Drying removes moisture or water from the food item. Microbes need moisture to grow. 

Heating kills most of the microbes in food. 

Refrigeration slows down the growth of the microbes since they cannot grow well in cold conditions. 

Moisturization or adding water actually promotes the growth of microbes since there is more water available for the microbes.
