Pantry Moisture Absorbers for healthy food storage.
Most of us have pantries in our home, either in the shape of a cupboard or a bigger walk-in version. Whatever the type, they all serve the purpose of storing food which does not need to be refrigerated, but should be kept out of the light for a longer shelf life. More on Storing Food for Safety and Quality here.
However, moisture is often a problem in pantries. Salt, sugar and other spices start clumping easily. Other staples like flour, polenta and so on are affected. The moisture affects the stored food and reduces its shelf life considerably. Sometimes we even find mould developing on some of the contents of our pantry.
We have analysed in an earlier post on Moisture and Mould Facts. There are four factors which will help mould to grow:
A poorly ventilated area.
A pantry fulfils all these requirements perfectly: The purpose of a pantry is to store food, which is organic matter. Inside the pantry it is usually dark and it is also poorly ventilated. Add some moisture, which in a kitchen is unavoidable, for instance steam from cooking and washing dishes. Mould spores will be very happy in this environment.
So what can we do about it?
There is not much we can change about the first three factors, as they are the essentials of a pantry. While moisture might seem unavoidable, there is something we can do about it. Pingi Pantry Moisture Aborbers collect the moisture in your pantry.
They do not dissolve, so there are no messy buckets collecting fluid standing around, which can easily be knocked over. Pingi Pantry Moisture Absorbers will just stand or lie on the shelf. They will absorb the moisture from the surrounding air, so your stored food won’t. Once they have absorbed their full capacity of moisture, they are recharged in the microwave for a few minutes. They can be used again and again.
