Can I keep candy in the refrigerator
The refrigerator is not the place to store candy. Many people like to store candy in the refrigerator. Although candy is afraid of high temperature, if it is stored in the refrigerator for a long time, it will absorb the taste of other ingredients in the refrigerator and make the candy taste bad, which is not a long-term solution. Here are two ways to store candy. You can try them.
Candy storage method
Iron box storage
Ordinary candies can be stored in an iron box for no more than half a year, while candies with more fat and protein can also be stored in an iron box for no more than three months. If there is a tendency to become damp and sour, they must be thrown away.
Low temperature storage of glass bottles
Candies can be stored in glass bottles at low indoor temperature and in non humid places.
Tip: Candy should not be placed in a sunny place, nor should it be stored with food containing too much water. Attention should be paid to both iron box storage and glass storage.
Shelf life of candy
The shelf life of candies is generally 6 months, and it will be 1-2 months shorter in summer.
In summer and autumn, when the average temperature is above 30 ℃ and the humidity is relatively high, the shelf life of all kinds of gel soft candies should not exceed 12 months, and that of hard candies should not exceed 12 months. The shelf life of tablet/polishing sugar is mainly affected by humidity, and the shelf life can reach 18~24 months when the package is well sealed.
