Whether you want to store leftovers, lunches, snacks or any other food, it is important that the food storage container you choose is air and liquid tight. Choosing the right container can also have many benefits. Here are a few examples.
Keeping food fresh
By keeping produce in airtight containers, you will help keep them fresher than if they are left in a box/bag. In contact with ambient air, foods can become ripe and sometimes unusable if you wait too long before using them. Keep them secured in airtight containers and the freshness will last longer.
Keeping the bugs away
Another advantage of using airtight containers is that you can keep the bugs/rats/other things away from the food. If placed in a cardboard box or left in the original bag, rodents can easily get through the packaging and get to the food.
By keeping food in storage containers you can avoid contamination of food by unwanted guests in the pantry.
Optimise pantry storage
Sometimes putting food away after coming back from grocery shopping can become a challenge, putting everything in. Have you thought about putting all your dry food/seasonings in storage containers, which helps with organisation.
It is also easy to identify food as the transparency of the container and the labels help to find the food quicker.
Use airtight containers for all your needs
Airtight and liquidtight food storage containers come in many shapes and sizes - you choose what you need. You can use plastic containers, glass containers, pantry containers or even lunch containers to hold food on the go. As they are liquid-tight, these containers can also hold liquid foods such as soups and drinks as well as hard foods.
When you choose your container, make sure you choose the correct size. Some of the smaller containers are for lunches - the larger storage containers are perfect for storing dry foods such as flour, sugar, rice, oatmeal, cereal and so on.
Please note that some containers are fridge safe, freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe. Glass containers are favoured by eco-friendly consumers. Not only are the containers perfect for storing food, they are easy to maintain and help keep food fresh.
