  • All biological matter oxidises and decomposes. due to oxygen in the environment and bacteria constantly reproducing and building up. These processes slow down at lower temperatures... That's why a fridge / freezer was invented.

    It's also why you don't have to put air tight sealed items like cans or jars in the fridge until they've been opened.

    Cheese. Especially grated. Spoins the most.

    While it depends on type of cheese, most cheese will spoil if not properly refrigerated.

    Some hard cheese like Parmigiano-Reggiano (commonly referred to as Parmesan) may not require refrigeration, but it's more prone to pick up undesirable odors (similar to baking soda) once grated & unsealed (if pre-grated).

    Yeah, it'll spoil, especially the cold packed grated cheese because it has so much surface area the mold will run rampant!

    No. The grating process of cheese causes a reaction where the cheese donates electrons to the surrounding air which acts as a conjugate base, and this process releases hydroxide (OH-) ions that act as a caustic agent to sanitize and remove particles / microorganisms.

    Yes unless it's the dehydrated kind like the stuff you shake on in a can but i think your still suppose to refrigerate after opening.
