Shelf life food storage and spoilage, woodworking pics - Review

We put together a little handout that gives shelf life for most of your Food Storage Items.
Milky appearance to liquid—as food ages the liquid will become more cloudy and a residue will begin to form in bottom of jar—this is the food sluffing off, but the appearance should not be milky. Corrosion on inside of can, especially along seam (particular problem with canned foods older than 10 years or so.
Frozen can or bottle—freezing produces hairline fractures in seal and allows spoilage to begin.
Food stored in non-food grade container—the container was not meant for food or once contained a non-food product (garbage bags, garbage cans, cleaning bottles or buckets, kitty liter containers, etc.). Optimum shelf life is when it is stored in ideal conditions, meaning sealed with oxygen absorbers and in a cool temperature. Rust and Frozen – obvious if the container is compromised and is no longer vacuum sealed I would throw it out. We’re Jodi and Julie, two busy moms who like to share what we learn while we build and use our Food Storage. The three-part ebook program teaches you how to build a food storage with checklists, an encyclopedia, and a recipe appendix. Way Ling Wiesser is a foodie enthusiast and the Ambassador for the Singapore Food Revolution, a voluntary arm of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation. Now that she is a mother of two, Way has become more conscientious about leftovers and she will always try to finish everything before making a fresh meal.
For all leftovers, I store them in a mixture of glass and plastic containers in the fridge – I always leave everything to cool completely before closing the lids and placing in the fridge.
I have a lot of different sizes of storage containers and find that the really small ones are very useful for tiny leftovers.
Store and handle your food properly at home to help you keep food longer without spoilage, and thus reduce food wastage.
Having proper storage and handling of food at home not only helps you ensure food safety, it also helps you keep food longer without spoilage, and thus reduce food wastage.
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) is in-charge of food safety, and has published several tips and resources on proper storage and handling of food at home.
Another tip is to keep food at safe temperatures, which means keeping hot food above 60°C and cold food below 5°C.

Use shallow containers and leave sufficient air space around the food to promote rapid and even cooling.
Take out only what you need to consume and return the unused portion to the refrigerator or freezer immediately. Read the storage instructions on the label and keep the dairy products at the correct storage condition.
Once a can of condensed or evaporated milk is opened, transfer its contents into a non-metallic container, cover tightly and refrigerate. Store butter and cheese in their original packaging in a covered non-metallic container and keep them refrigerated. Inspect dried and preserved food regularly for insect infestations, mouldiness and other signs of spoilage.
Store unopened dried and preserved food in a cool and dry place, away from heat or direct sunlight. Dried and preserved food that are to be kept for extended periods of time should be stored in packaging that does not allow air or water vapor into the package to prevent rancidity or growth of moulds. Once a pre-packed dried and preserved food is opened, transfer the unused portion to air-tight containers and keep them in the refrigerator to maintain their quality.
Remove the soiled portions of vegetables, cut off the base and wash away any residual soil in a basin of tap water. Do not mix fruits with vegetables in the same storage compartment as fruits produce ethylene gas during their ripening process. When storing or thawing meat in the refrigerator, place the meat in containers or trays to prevent the meat juices from contaminating other food.
Wash and dry fresh seafood before placing them in clean plastic bags or containers for storage. When storing or thawing seafood in the refrigerator, place the seafood in containers or trays to prevent the juices from contaminating other food. The worse these conditions are the less likely we will be to eat a particular food, but if it were safe to begin with, and it passes the following food safety test now, then it should be safe. It has helped me start preparing my food storage, when all I could feel was overwhelmed and did not know where to start.
I really wish I had these lists last year when I began using my in-laws Food Storage at their insistence.

When she was younger, her dad (now, a retired chef) cooked really big meals of multiple dishes, traditional Chinese style, and there was always too much food so the family were used to storing leftovers and finishing off the following day. She’s also cooking smaller portions in order to minimise the need for storing leftovers.
My favourite tip is to save any leftover wine in small containers – perfect for quick defrosting and adding into a pasta sauce!
Raw food can contain micro-organisms that cause foodborne diseases, and when raw food is mixed with cooked food, the micro-organisms may be transferred to the cooked food and cause cross-contamination.
Food can be eaten up to the end of this date but not after even if it looks and smells fine.
This would help you ensure food safety, keep food longer without spoilage, and reduce food wastage.
I never knew flour could go bad, but believe me, it does and it’s the most horrible taste you could imagine!
Way believes that food needs to be stored properly to maintain freshness at all times, particularly in Singapore where the humidity is so high.
I also use a special fruit and vegetable cushion in the fridge to prolong shelf life and prevent bruising of my fresh produce. I also need big containers as I like to bake and cakes and muffins have to be stored in the fridge here in Singapore.
Dangerous bacteria may grow in this warm spot which can lead to food poisoning if consumed. For consumers who decide to consume food products after expiry dates, it is paramount that they can recognise characteristic of spoiled or unsafe food. I tried to print it out, but it was wider than my page and I did not get all of the information.
