Yes, You Can Store These in Your Stuff n' Stack Bags!

by LocknLock Better Living on January 30, 2021

Food waste is one of the most pressing issues that we face in our world today. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, a whopping 1.3 billion tonnes of food go to waste globally each year, which is a third of all the food produced for us to consume. Wasted food ends up in landfills, which has a big impact on our environment, our economy, and our society. That is why it is vital to ensure that we are doing our part to make sure we are not wasteful of our food. Properly storing food is one way to prevent food waste, and it is necessary for preserving the nutritional value and quality of the food that you consume.

Stuff n’ Stack bags are excellent food storage foods because they can keep food fresh for longer. They are made out of platinum, food-grade silicone that has been certified safe by the US FDA. Stuff n’ Stack bags are a great alternative to single-use plastics. They are also PVC-free, BPA-free, and Phthalate-free, which make them safe for storing food. Here are some foods that you can store in a Stuff n’ Stack bag and some tips on how to keep your food fresh for longer:

Fruits and Vegetables

1. Carrots and celery

Carrot and celery pieces can be submerged in water to avoid losing their crunch. Simply pour some water into the Stuff n’ Stack bag and submerge the vegetable pieces in it. This is also useful for helping them regain their crispness. You would just need to change the water they are being submerged in every couple of days to ensure maximum freshness.

2. Leafy greens

Leafy greens often spoil much quicker before we get to use all of them up, but this can be prevented through proper storage. Increase their shelf life by washing them with water and drying them completely with a clean cloth. Use a Stuff n’ Stack bag to store the greens once they have dried completely to help them stay crisp for longer.

3. Citrus fruits

Having fresh citrus fruit on hand is always useful. Freezing these fruits is the best way to keep them fresh. Stuff n’ Stack bags are freezer-safe, so you can put your lemons, oranges, and limes in them and put them in your freezer. You can either put in the whole fruit or cut the fruit into quarters or rounds. When you are ready to use them, simply pop the Stuff n’ Stack bag in the microwave for a few seconds, or take out the fruits and let them soak in water for a few minutes. Remember to keep as much air out of the bag as possible to ensure maximum freshness.

4. Bananas, apples, and avocados

Do you ever notice how when you cut up these fruits, the slices turn brown in a matter of minutes? This does not only make the fruits appear more unappealing. They also begin to taste different. Bananas, apples, and avocados are highly gaseous, which could cause them to go bad quickly. That is why these fruits need to be stored separately from other produce. Stuff n’ Stack bags can be used to individually pack these fruits and keep them fresh, helping them stay crisp and delicious a little longer. As a bonus tip, you can also soak the fruit slices in lemon juice for a few minutes to keep them from browning too quickly.

 

Dairy Products

1. Natural, aged cheeses

Cheeses like mozzarella, Swiss, and gouda can be frozen in a Stuff n’ Stack bag. This will help keep them fresh and free from mold. To use, simply thaw the cheeses. This will prevent them from crumbling. Remember to use the cheese as soon as the thawing process is completed to ensure the best quality.

2. Yogurt cups

Although yogurt cups already come with their container, Stuff n’ Stack bags make for easy carrying. To keep yogurt fresh and fit for eating, store them in the fridge until mealtime. You can also use the Stuff n’ Stack container to carry around the yogurt cup in your bag for a quick snack on the go.

 

Meats and Poultry

Meat and poultry products can last longer than fresh produce, but it is still necessary to properly store them to ensure maximum freshness. The best way to store meats and poultry is to put them in the freezer. Use a Stuff n’ Stack bag to store pieces of meat or chicken, and keep them in the freezer until ready for cooking. With proper storage, meat and poultry products can last for months.

 

Snacks

1. Chips

Chips can go stale quickly once they are exposed to air, and there is nothing worse than biting into a chip and feeling your teeth sink into a chewy, gummy-like texture. With a Stuff n’ Stack bag, you can keep your chips crisp and fresh. This is also perfect for snacking while you are on the go, as you can fit your Stuff n’ Stack container in your bag without any worries of using up too much space.

2. Coffee beans

Coffee beans must be kept in an air-tight container and stored in a dark place with no moisture to have the freshest taste. Stuff n’ Stack bags can be used to store coffee beans and keep them dry and safe from the elements. Do not freeze your coffee beans! Doing so will lessen their favor and will keep them from giving you the best coffee experience.

3. Chocolate

It is important to note that opened bars of chocolate should not be stored in the refrigerator, as chocolate may absorb surrounding orders, making it taste different. However, if the temperature gets too hot, as it often does in the Philippines, you would need to store the chocolate in the fridge to keep it from melting. A Stuff n’ Stack bag can help keep out odors from other foods inside the refrigerator and keep chocolate fresh and ready to eat. The same rules apply for candies, which are best stored away from other types of foods and in a cool, dry place.
