PROPER FOOD STORAGE TIPS
GOURMET RESERVES
Shelf Stable Food Systems

It is crucial that you store food reserves properly. Avoid exposure to heat and moisture. Make sure foods are not accessible to insects or animals. Never store food directly on the ground or on concrete floors-moisture can build up inside containers. Avoid such storage places that experience temperature buildup such as attics, garages or car trunks. Ideally, storage for Gourmet Reserves should not exceed room temperature for extended periods. Store in a location that's accessible so that periodic inspections are easy. Rotate supplies. Storage of some bulk foods can be enhanced by natural aids such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, bay leaves, rosemary, and diatomaceous earth. Avoid excessive and rough handling of pouch and canned foods.
