Food Storage Is the act of keeping food in a suitable and safe condition or facilities for later use.
Its one thing to keep food and another to keep food safe.
Therefore, safety food storage refers to the practices of preserving food to still retain the quality, avoid contamination and food diseases. Food safety also refers to the way food is handled, prepared and stored without contamination.
Safety food storage involves paying attention to hygiene and making use of appropriate storage facilities.
To ensure that the food is stored in good condition, we should wash hands thoroughly and possibly put on gloves before handling food.
We should also store them in the right temperature.
Do not put food meant for airtight containers in the refrigerator. It will make it moist and possibly loose its quality.
Avoid also preserving food already contaminated.
There are different storage facilities for different purposes and so it’s important that we pay attention to such.
Safety food storage facilities includes refrigerator, air-tight containers and freezer.
