Nuts & Dry Fruits
Recommended storage times for dried foods range from 4 months to 1 year. Because food quality is affected by heat, the storage temperature helps determine the length of storage; the higher the temperature, the shorter the storage time. Most dried fruits can be stored for 1 year at 60ºF, 6 months at 80ºF.
Store In Airtight Container: Always keep dry fruits in an airtight container. This reduces the risk of them drying out. Air and moisture may damage them. Hence, it is recommended to always keep dry fruits in an air tight container.
SAFE HANDLING OF NUTS & DRY FRUITS
Bacteria are everywhere. Some types of bacteria are beneficial to human health, many have no impact on health, and some cause severe illness and even death. Dry foods like nuts are not a common source of harmful bacteria. However, in recent years a number of dried foods have been associated with outbreaks of salmonellosis. This has included outbreaks with raw almonds, cereal, peanut butter, dried pet food, black pepper, and sesame seeds. Refrigeration and freezing do not destroy this bacteria. The presence of harmful bacteria cannot be determined by sight, smell, taste, or texture.
