Snow’s the safest way to eat fresh and in small quantities.
The researchers collected the snow from the Park and near the roundabout in the Romanian city of Miercurea Ciuc in January and February by placing the samples in sealed sterile containers, which were kept at temperature a minus of 17.4-1.1 degrees Celsius. Scientists tracked the development in samples of bacteria and mold.
It turned out that when the content of the January snow in one day the number of bacteria increased to five per square millimeter. At the February samples, this figure was four times higher. At the same time very fresh snow up to 12 hours, the content of microorganisms was insignificant, but after two days, there were dozens of microbes.
