Bread is a staple of any healthy eating plan. It’s delicious, nutritious and versatile. But how do you store your bread so that it doesn’t go stale before you get a chance to eat it? Here are some tips to help keep your bread fresh and tasty for as long as possible. Visit our blog for even more great storage tips.
If you’re keeping your bread in the refrigerator, it’s best to keep it in an airtight container. This will prevent any moisture from getting trapped inside and causing mold growth. Bread should be stored at room temperature for no more than two days, or kept frozen for no more than six months (but really–who thinks about this?).
You can store your bread in a variety of ways:
Store your bread in an airtight container. BPA-free plastic and glass containers are best, but you may also want to use metal, ceramic and wooden ones as well. Plastic wrap is another good option if you don’t want your bread to come into contact with air for too long (especially if it’s already been exposed to moisture). Foil is another good choice–just make sure that it’s not too close to the top of your container, since this could affect rising rates over time. You can also use waxed paper or aluminum foil as well; just make sure they’re not touching each other so they don’t stick together!
Bread is a staple food that many people eat every day, so it’s important to know how to store it so that it lasts long enough for your next meal. We recommend storing bread in the refrigerator and wrapping with plastic wrap or foil before putting it away. If you don’t have room in your fridge, then we also recommend keeping any leftover bread out of direct sunlight, so there won’t be too much moisture on the outside when you go back into storage mode again.
