CHILL TO PERFECTION
The fridge digits to ramp up your food’s nutritional value
2-3°C The ideal temperature to keep nasty bacteria at bay. TIP: Cold air sinks, so the bottom of the fridge is coolest. Keep your raw meat here.
4-5°C Your non-perishables like butter, jam and eggs need to be in the warmest part of the fridge. TIP: Keep them on the top shelf of your fridge door.
13°C Cucumbers will taste perfect at this temperature. That’s the key to keeping them crunchy. TIP: Wrap them in a dish cloth and keep on the top shelf.
21°C Yes, room temp. Leave watermelon out to double its lycopene and beta-carotene content. TIP: Leave it for a few days; pop in the fridge a day before eating.
