There is never a quick question when it comes to safety.

You are what you eat.

liquid nitrogen won't kill any bacteria - they survive and will look forward comin back to warm life ;o)

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Froggy said it right, but the most important thing to remember is that toxins are produced as a result of heating or oxigenating or freezing a bacteria colture like clostridium. So not only you will kill the bacteria, but you will promote toxines production especially if heating is slow. Freezing is the worse.

I haven't heard that before. Can you provide a reputable source for that set of facts? Thanks

Support bacteria. It's the only culture some people have.
