7 long-life food items that actually deteriorate quickly


Many owners mistakenly believe that products with a long shelf life should be recruited with a margin.

All sorts of actions are especially harmful in this respect, during which one really wants to “recruit as much as possible and all,” because then there may not be such an opportunity.

In fact, many products are not able to be stored longer than one month.

1. Sauces, ketchups, mayonnaise

All this will quickly deteriorate.

Each time a container with mayonnaise, sauce or ketchup is opened, the shelf life of these products is significantly reduced. It is worth remembering this when you decide to take several types of such products and use them simultaneously. The life of sauces (and other similar things) ranges from 2 to 30 days.

2. Yeast

Do not recruit them with a margin.

Remember that yeasts are made up of living organisms, and they grow old and die. If you open the dry yeast, they will stretch no more than 48 hours. It is possible to increase the life of yeast up to two weeks by transferring this product to a glass container and sending it to storage in a dark place.

3. Nuts

Nuts can be very harmful.

Nuts grow moldy - this is the most important thing to know about this product in the context of long-term storage. Moreover, mold in nuts is usually tasteless and invisible to the human eye. If there are spoiled nuts on a regular basis, they can cause the development of oncology.

4. Oils

Any oils quickly get lost.

A very capricious product that, to preserve freshness, should not have contact with light and oxygen. The latter is inevitable, and therefore the oil cannot be stored for too long. In addition, the oil is not the best way to affect any temperature drops. Most types of oil will not last more than 30 days from the time the container is unpacked.

5. Coffee

Not as long stored as it seems.

Roasted coffee quickly accumulates moisture from the air if stored improperly. This may be the reason that very soon the coffee will spoil. All the same applies to ground coffee.

6. Flour

In the house it can not be stored properly.

If you comply with all the conditions, then the flour can be stored for 10 years. It’s really not possible to do this in an apartment. The most detrimental effect on flour is the formation of condensate, which inevitably occurs in containers located in apartments.

7. Spices

Very quickly lose their properties.

Turmeric, pepper, granulated garlic, dried dill are not as strong as most owners think. To keep all these things does not cost more than 6 months. Otherwise, the spices lose their beneficial and taste properties.
