Foods not to be kept in the refrigerator

Foods not to be kept in the refrigerator. The refrigerator is certainly one of the most popular appliances in the world. You know that it is very important to keep the fresh foods we buy daily, both to preserve the taste, both to make sure they last longer.

Unfortunately, not all foods must be stored in fridge, because the taste of them may deteriorate. Here is a list of some foods that should not be kept in the refrigerator.

Foods not to be kept in the refrigerator

Pane: The low temperature of the fridge is the main cause of the deterioration of leavened products prepared with flour. Cold causes yeast inhibition so bread will tend to dry out quickly. The best way to store bread is to place it in a paper bag at room temperature, or as the grandmother did in a cloth bag.

Honey: Our sweet honey if kept in the refrigerator would tend to crystallize. The best place to store honey is away from any heat source, whenever possible in a dark place.

Foods where to store them

Some kind of fruit and vegetables: For some types of starchy vegetables the low temperature of the refrigerator is not really recommended. Let's take the example of potatoes that in the refrigerator would oxidize immediately and irreparably become rancid.

Even tomatoes like all red fruits should not be kept in the fridge, you know that molds and yeasts are comfortable in low temperatures, then they would take on the mold process.
