6 Common Misconceptions About Frozen Meat (4 Min. Read)

Frozen meat has often been stigmatized, with the belief that only fresh or chilled products can deliver healthy and delicious meals. However, in this blog, we will uncover the truth behind frozen meat and shed light on why choosing it can bring numerous advantages to your health, finances, and the environment.

1. Frozen Meat is of Lower Quality

It's a prevailing misconception that frozen meat lacks quality. At Horizon Farms, we ensure top-notch quality through proper handling and packaging. Our secret lies in vacuum-packing the meat, which prevents the formation of water crystals and protects it from exposure to air. As a result, all the essential vitamins and minerals are preserved, and our meat tastes as fresh as if it had never been frozen.

2. Frozen Meat Is Less Nutritious And Flavorless

Many individuals often presume that the nutritional value of food lies solely in its freshness, believing that freezing it will lead to the loss of essential vitamins and minerals. However, our products utilize an innovative vacuum-sealed packaging technique that preserves the integrity of these nutrients. Rest assured, no cells are harmed during this process, and the amount of vitamins and minerals remain unchanged. Additionally, the superb vacuum-sealing of our meat ensures it remains untouched by air, thereby safeguarding its delectable flavor and aroma.

3. Frozen Meat is Troublesome

At Horizon Farms, we understand that lengthy preparation hours can deter people from opting for frozen meat. However, we take pride in offering a delightful solution: the majority of our meat is expertly portioned and ready to use after defrosting, requiring no additional preparation. Our high-quality meat speaks for itself, eliminating the need for excessive seasoning or marinating, thereby saving you valuable time when preparing a delicious meal.

4. Frozen Foods Contain Added Preservatives

Embracing the natural art of preservation, freezing renders the need for added preservatives obsolete. At our company, we take pride in offering products that are entirely free from preservatives, chemicals, and any undesirable additives. Thanks to our state-of-the-art vacuum packaging, the meat remains securely shielded from any potential contamination, making the use of preservatives unnecessary. Rest assured, our commitment to purity ensures that you enjoy only the finest and most natural flavors.

5. The Quality of Frozen Meat Deteriorates Faster

Put your worries about the expiration date of forgotten frozen meat to rest, as we guarantee its safety for consumption. Our meat products undergo a meticulous vacuum-sealing process, and our special freezing method effectively preserves all essential nutrients. As long as the meat is consistently stored in the freezer, you can be confident that it retains its quality and safety, rivaling that of freshly chilled meat.

6. Frozen Meat Leads to More Food Loss

In fact, opting for frozen meat not only saves you from the waste often associated with chilled meat due to unexpected changes in plans or convenience, but also offers a host of other advantages. With our frozen meat, you can enjoy longer storage times, thanks to the thoughtful portioning of smaller cuts, leading to a remarkable reduction in food waste and its environmental impact. Furthermore, embracing frozen meat means you'll find yourself making fewer trips to the supermarket or restaurants, thus effectively lessening your environmental footprint even further. It's a win-win situation for both you and the planet!
