If you don't finish a dish in one sitting, you can easily eat it the next day by heating it up in the microwave. Almost everyone thinks so. However, doing so can be very harmful to your health. The thing is, there are a number of foods that don't like reheating and lose all their benefits in this case.

The FoodOboz editorial team has gathered information for you and will tell you which three foods should not be reheated in the microwave .

How not to cook rice


Rice is a particularly popular food for Bacillus cereus bacteria. To ensure that no spores remain in the cereal, it must be cooked thoroughly. It is important to note that after two hours of cooking, rice should be refrigerated. Otherwise, the growth of microbes that cannot be destroyed by the microwave will begin. If they get into the body, they will provoke poisoning.

How not to cook eggs


As a rule, the shelf life of boiled eggs is 1 day (provided you store them in the refrigerator). Once they have cooled, they should not be reheated, as this will cause the protein to oxidize and produce carcinogens.

How not to cook potatoes


In the case of potatoes, everything is the same as with rice. The product should never be left at room temperature for a long time, let alone reheated several times. Otherwise, there is a risk of poisoning. Botulism is caused by a bacterium that produces a toxin. This toxin, in turn, can affect the nervous system.

Earlier, I reported what foods should not be eaten or drunk on an empty stomach.
