Honey is a common natural nourishing supplement in our life, and its nutritional value is very high. Especially for women, it has the effect of nourishing and beautifying, which is deeply loved by the majority of women. But in the hot summer, a lot of people think that high temperature honey is easy to break in the room with normal temperature, so it is put in the refrigerator. So honey in the fridge in summer? Let's take a look at it with Xiaobian~
Should honey be put in the refrigerator in summer
Generally not required.
Honey is very sweet and greasy, but different from other sweet food, other sweet food is easy to be infected by fungus when the temperature is high in summer, which leads to deterioration and corruption, but different from honey, honey will intentionally release some enzymes in the honey processing and production, which can play an effective bactericidal role and prevent deterioration. Therefore, if the ambient temperature is not too high, there is no need to put it in the refrigerator. Honey will not be bad in hot weather, as long as it is sealed in a cool place away from light.
Honey crystallizes easily in refrigerator
It's a good and bad way to store honey in the refrigerator. The biggest advantage is that honey can't be put into the refrigerator, and it's convenient to take and eat at any time. But the bad thing is that the water content in honey is less, and the glucose in honey is combined with coarse particles such as pollen. If the fruit is put into the refrigerator, the combination will be destroyed, which is easy to cause a large amount of crystallization of glucose , although such change will not cause honey deterioration, it will also affect the taste of honey. When eating, it has a granular feeling and no uniform taste. In terms of population, solid honey is not as good as liquid honey.
How to keep honey in summer
In summer, if the temperature is too high or even over 40 ℃, the high temperature will have a certain impact on honey, but it is only necessary to store honey in a dark, ventilated and dark place, so as to achieve effective preservation without too much worry.
