Did you know that it’s a mistake to refrigerate these foods?
We know that for some items, the first instinct we have is to put them in the fridge, but some are actually better off not being refrigerated. Likewise, it is common knowledge that a lot of our habits are picked up from close family members or even trusted friends, so it is no surprise that maybe some of you have been refrigerating these items because it is how you have always been doing it.
Yet, we shouldn’t rely just on hearsay. Some food items actually do need refrigeration in order to make sure they stay fresh as long as possible, while others will fare better at room temperature. It goes against the grain when some of these items are things like cheese or pickled foods, but if you don’t want to end up with more food to throw out, you should stop putting some of them in the fridge.
What’s more, some foods lose their nutritional value over time if they are stored too much, and this is not something we want to do. Read along to discover which of the most commonly refrigerated food items you shouldn’t store in your fridge at all and how you should be storing them instead!
