Bread is a staple on the tables of Ukrainians. However, its shelf life is relatively short as it can quickly become stale or moldy. SSPDaily has gathered some tips on how to store bread properly to enjoy the fresh product for as long as possible.

  • Choose the right place for storage

Make sure that the place where you store bread has normal air exchange and oxygen circulation.

  • Clean bread containers regularly

Clean your bread bin to eliminate potential mold. Use a mild vinegar solution once a week.

  • Store away from heat and moisture

Do not place bread near sources of heat and moisture as this can speed up the deterioration process.

  • Allow the bread to cool completely

Before putting new products in storage, allow them to cool completely. The process can take up to three hours, but it will definitely help preserve the quality of the bread.

Simple life hacks for storing bread

  • Use antiseptic bread bins

Buy a bread bin made of birch bark or juniper as it has natural antiseptic properties.

  • Put sugar or salt near the bread

To prevent mold, place a little sugar or salt next to the bread. These ingredients absorb excess moisture.

  • Store bread in cloth bags

Wrap the bread in a cloth bag with ventilation holes to prevent it from getting airborne.

  • Store different types of bread separately

To preserve the flavor of white and black bread, store them separately. If you only have one container, use different packaging or baking paper for each type.

Can bread be stored in the refrigerator

  • Loss of flavor

Refrigeration can lead to a loss of flavor in baked goods, so it's best not to use this option for long-term storage.

  • Avoid cellophane bags

Refrain from storing bread in the refrigerator in a closed cellophane bag as it can promote mold growth due to the high humidity.

Freezing bread

Freezing bread is an effective way to store it for a long time. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Wrap the bread in foil and place it in a plastic bag. Before sealing, remove as much air from the package as possible.
  2. For greater convenience, freeze bread in slices rather than whole loaves. This speeds up the defrosting process and allows you to use only the portions you need.
