Store Well Waste Less Whole Grains
Sep 01
  By dana.bean

■ Heat, air and light can make whole grains taste and smell rancid. Store whole grains in:

  • airtight containers or reclosable bags. Airtight packaging will also keep out any insects.
  • a cool, dry and dark location or choose a container that keeps light out. Freeze for longest storage.

■ Stored properly, whole intact grains will keep for up to 6 months on a cool, dry shelf or up to a year in the freezer.

■ Ground whole grains will keep for 1 to 3 months on a cool, dry shelf or 2 to 6 months in the freezer.
