Lesson 4 (Storage Methods)

Store In A Cool Dry Place

Keep your finished and semi-finished products that do not require refrigeration in a cool, dry place with good ventilation. When you buy bread that is still slightly warm from the bakery, it gives off a wonderful aroma for customers, but the moisture that continues to escape from the bread must also be able to escape. The shelf life of the product depends on the specific product, but typically ranges from one day to one week.

Keep In The Fridge

Most pastry products should be kept refrigerated. The temperature of the refrigerator or cooling counter must be at 4°C, and it must always be kept hygienically clean. Finished products can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

Keep In The Freezer

Of course, you can put a lot of things in a freezer. However, since a freezer contains moisture, baked products may become brittle, and the food can go bad. There is a wide range of options that can be stored in a freezer. When working with frozen dough, it is important to adjust your ingredients accordingly. Typically, only frozen yeast is used for products that are stored below 0°C for more than a week. Frozen yeast is more resistant to storage in the freezer and has no loss of efficiency compared to traditional yeast. It's important to protect products that you freeze from freezer burn. So always pack your products in an airtight plastic bag or container.
