Reasons for wrapping food before storing in the refrigerator are;

  • To protect against cross contamination from other foods
  • To prevent the food from drying up through loss of moisture
  • To keep out surrounding air which may rise the food temperature
  • To prevent oxidation which bring about changes in colour, taste and nutritive value of food.
  • To keep food from exchanging flavor during storage
