How to store different products?

Everyone knows that many of the purchased products should be immediately cleaned in the fridge. But how exactly should they be stored there?

Choosing a place

The refrigerator is divided into sections. In each of them, a certain temperature is maintained, so when distributing to the shelves, it is worth being careful.

So, where and what to put?

  • On the top shelf it is better to store ready meals, as well as fruit and vegetable salads.
  • On the second shelf you can place sausages, cheeses, as well as fish and meat salads.
  • On the third lowest shelf you can store chilled fish, meat and seafood, as well as dairy products and perishables.
  • Put fruit and vegetables in the drawers.
  • Juices, sauces, eggs, water and alcohol can be stored in the door.
  • The freezing chamber. It contains frozen food. In this case, the principle: the higher the shelf, the higher the temperature. At the bottom you can store meat and ice cream. It is advisable to store all the semi-finished products on the middle shelf.And on the uppermost shelf (the temperature is the highest here), vegetables, berries, fruits, fish, butter and seafood will feel great.

What is the templea thread?

How to store food in the refrigerator? Plays an important role.

Possible options:

  • Fruits and vegetables should be stored in paper bags. Polyethylene will also be suitable, but in this case the surface should be thoroughly dried to avoid rotting (the paper absorbs and evaporates moisture).
  • Sausages, sausages, ham, smoked meat and other similar products are best kept in vacuum packages. Once opened, they can be wrapped in foil.
  • Greens can be placed in a glass or plastic container. In the "native" film, in which you bought it in the store, it will quickly deteriorate.
  • Meat and fish are best kept in plastic containers or in stainless steel tanks (preferably coated with enamel).
  • Kefir, milk or liquid yogurt after opening the package is best to pour into a glass bottle with a lid. Solid fermented milk products (butter, cheese, cottage cheese) are recommended to be placed in containers made of plastic or glass.
  • Fatty foods (for example, fried fish or lard) are preferably wrapped in foil or food film, this will avoid the spread of odors and dirt.
  • It is desirable to shift the cans from cans to glass ones, since the metal is rapidly oxidized, which spoils the taste and promotes the propagation of pathogenic microorganisms.
  • Ready meals can be kept in glass or plastic containers, as well as in an enamel pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Eggs can be stored in the same container in which they were sold.
  • Salted fish is best wrapped in food film, otherwise its bright smell will spread throughout the refrigerator.

Dangerous neighborhood

Few know that some products can not be stored in close proximity to each other.

Some important rules:

  • Never store raw foods and cooked food nearby. In the first, many pathogenic bacteria can live, which can get into the prepared food (and this will cause poisoning).
  • Dairy products quickly absorb odors, so you should not store them with products that have a sharp "flavor".
  • It is advisable to keep separate from dairy products, vegetables and fruits of smoked meats and sausages.
  • The fish also has a smell, so place it away from products that quickly absorb odors.
  • They can absorb smells and eggs, so they should also be stored separately.

Helpful Tips

A few recommendations:

  1. Periodically spend in the refrigerator checks and throw out all the spoiled products, as pathogens can quickly spread to the "neighbors", that is, products located nearby. And mold is very dangerous for health.
  2. Always make sure that the door of the refrigerator is tightly closed, otherwise everything that is on it and next to it will simply disappear.
  3. Your refrigerator should be clean, so that any dirt should be removed immediately. And once every three or four weeks, it is advisable to arrange a general cleaning and wipe all the shelves. You can use a disinfectant to eliminate all bacteria that remain inside.
  4. In order not to forget when you put this or that product in the fridge, use labels. Stick on the container with the date of purchase.
  5. Do not leave spoons in containers, they provoke oxidation.
  6. Some products do not have to be sent to the fridge. At room temperature, you can store carrots, onions, raw potatoes, beets and some other vegetables. As for fruits, you can not cool those that have a dense skin (it protects against spoilage): citrus fruits, bananas, pineapples and so on. Also, do not send in the fridge canned and sweet (sugar plays the role of a preservative and protects from rotting), with the exception of cakes, pastries and some melting desserts.
  7. Be sure to study the storage conditions of the product indicated on its packaging.
  8. It is advisable to choose square or rectangular containers for storage, rather than round ones, since they are much easier to place on shelves, and they take up less space.
  9. If the packaging is damaged, by all means replace it.
  10. Do not put hot dishes in the fridge. First, it will lead to the formation of condensation, and secondly, rapid cooling can have a bad effect on flavor and aromatic properties.
  11. Try not to clutter up and do not overfill the refrigerator, as this can disrupt its operation and prevent the circulation of cold air, which will lead to spoilage of products.
  12. It is desirable to store all products in a container, it will protect not only from rotting, but also from foreign smells.
  13. Vegetables, herbs and fruits should be washed in running water and dried well before being “sent” to the refrigerator.
  14. Be careful when choosing plastic containers. Acquire those that can be used to store food, as some types of plastic emit harmful substances. In general, it is better to use glass containers, it is more hygienic and useful. Glass does not leak and does not absorb odors.
  15. Store in the refrigerator and vegetable oil first cold-pressed, as they quickly deteriorate at room temperature.
  16. For the storage of vegetables and fruits, you can purchase a special anti-bacterial pad, which not only prevents the reproduction of pathogenic microorganisms, but also provides additional air circulation.

Store food correctly so that it remains tasty, fresh and healthy.
