What is the maximum temperature allowed while cold holding cut fruit?
Simply so, what is the maximum temperature allowed while cold holding cheesecake?
For cold foods, the food safe temperature is 40 degrees Fahrenheit and below. For hot foods, the safe temperature is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, if you're operating in a warm kitchen that's above 90 degrees Fahrenheit, your food shouldn't be in the danger zone for longer than an hour.
Subsequently, question is, what is the maximum amount of time allowed by the FDA Food Code that time temperature control TCS foods can be kept in the temperature danger zone? four hours
Also asked, what is the maximum cold holding temperature allowed for deli meat?
Hot food should be held at 140 °F or warmer. Cold food should be held at 40 °F or colder.
What is the maximum temperature allowed in a refrigerator?
The maximum internal temperature for food stored in the fridge is 41 degrees Fahrenheit. Any higher than that and you're creeping into the range where bacteria gets out the mix tape and lights the candles, so to speak.
