Tesco Launches Microwave Meals That Whistle When Ready

May 16, 2011: 05:04 AM EST
Ready meals just got even easier. Tesco will launch in June 2011 a new range of chilled microwave ready-meal Indian curry dishes that whistle when cooked. You don’t have to pierce the lid before use or stir halfway through. Manufactured by S&R Foods under the East End brand, the meals use built-in pasteurization cooking process and will have a shelf life of 30 days without the need for preservatives. Based on a Swedish technology, the meal packs use a valve in the film lid to form a vacuum, sealing in "nutrients, textures, and flavors and keeping out bacteria. The makers of the technology claim a Michelin-starred chef is using it in Sweden.
