SSPDaily has prepared practical tips on how to preserve food during a power outage. Find out how to guarantee the quality and safety of food supplies.

Right choice of products

Give preference to foods with a longer shelf life, such as canned goods, dried fruits, and jerky so that they can withstand a power outage. Avoid perishable foods such as fresh fruit and dairy products as they will not survive without refrigeration. It is advisable to stock up on plenty of bottled water.

Methods of temperature control

To maintain a low temperature, it is recommended to keep the refrigerator and freezer closed as long as possible. Perishable foods should be transferred to the refrigerator, adding ice packs or dry ice to prolong their freshness. Alternatively, you can use a generator or portable power source to temporarily power the refrigerator or freezer to ensure the safety and quality of perishable foods.

Proper storage

To avoid contamination, perishable foods should be stored separately from those that are stored for a long time. Proper labeling and dating of stored foods will make it easy to identify and use the oldest foods first.

Extend the shelf life of open foods by using airtight containers or storage bags. If your refrigerator is out of service, use an ice cube tray to securely store perishable foods and keep them fresh longer.

Safety

It is very important to refrain from consuming food that you think may have spoiled or been tainted. When in doubt, dispose of the food to prevent possible health risks. For safety, stock up on a flashlight and enough spare batteries to provide adequate lighting.
