containers that can be used to hold flour:
1. Sealed woven bags
2. Food grade sealed plastic boxes, glass cans, etc
note: flour should be placed in a dry and ventilated place, not in a humid and muggy place.
just put the flour in the flour bag directly
if there is a large cylinder, you can consider putting it in the cylinder
do not expose to the sun, nor put it in a wet place, let alone in a metal container.
1. How to keep the flour free from insects
1. Keep the flour dry and ventilated
2. Put a little pepper and large materials in a cloth bag to repel insects
3. The flour cannot be placed next to the corner of the wall or the ground
2. Why does the flour produce insects
the protective cortex of wheat is removed, and the protein, oil and Starch and other components are sufficient, and the water content is higher than that of wheat. In case of invasion of foreign pests or insect eggs, it is very easy to produce insects at the current temperature
III. does flour have a shelf life
Yes. The shelf life of flour is generally indicated on the packaging bag at the time of purchase, one year or 12 months. At room temperature, the shelf life of flour should be from 3 months to 12 months. Due to different seasons and packaging methods, the shelf life will be relatively prolonged or shortened. The weather in the south is relatively humid. It’s best to store it in a relatively cool and dry place. It’s better in the north, as long as it’s not in a place with high temperature. Putting flour in a vacuum bag can appropriately prolong the shelf life of flour. However, flour is still bought in small quantities for many times. After all, the longer the time is, the lower the nutritional composition of flour will be, and insects will turn yellow. So don’t be afraid of trouble. Buy it when you want to use it.
if there are rats in the countryside, try to install noodles in a noodle jar.
use a large cylinder.
