Why is it that when I take out frozen French fries from the bag to cook my hands are sometimes greasy afterwards?
Frozen French fries are certainly a convenient food product, an item that can be quickly prepared by a quick fry, baked, or air-fried. Your hands may feel oily after handling frozen fries because they have already gone through some processing: typically a hot-water blanch followed by a brief blanch in vegetable oil and then individually quick-frozen (IQF). S, after handling you indeed may detect a slight oil residue which is normal and your hands can easily be washed clean.

Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protecting the famous "Grown in Idaho®" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho® potatoes. Idaho's ideal growing conditions, including rich, volcanic soil, climate and irrigation differentiate Idaho® potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.
