Honey is one of the most common drinks. You can often see honey in your daily life. People who like honey sometimes worry that it will break if they leave it for a long time. Then how can honey be preserved in summer? The temperature in summer is relatively high, so you must do a good job of preservation.
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.
Can honey be put in the refrigerator
1. The answer is yes, honey can be put in the refrigerator, but not in the frozen layer, but in the fresh-keeping layer, which we should not ignore.
2. Honey contains a lot of glucose and fructose, which is very easy to ferment and deteriorate. Therefore, honey should be stored in a dry place and sealed. If it is mature honey, it only needs to be stored at room temperature. If it is not fully mature honey, it is easy to ferment when the temperature is too high in summer, so it is best to put it in the refrigerator for preservation.
3. After honey is put into the refrigerator, it is easy to crystallize. There are normal physical phenomena in the process of honey crystallization. However, honey will change its taste after crystallization, which will not affect food safety, but may affect its business composition.
Will honey break in the fridge in summer
Honey will not go bad. Put honey in a cool and dry place. After pouring out honey, tighten the bottle cap
Honey is a kind of natural antibacterial agent, and high-quality honey will not decay after being placed at room temperature for several years, which shows that it has a strong antiseptic effect. The premise is not to mix with water! But not absolutely, contaminated by yeast, which can make honey ferment and deteriorate and foam on the surface.
----1. Honey that has not been taken out of the hive will not go bad, because bacteria can't infect the hive, the temperature in the hive is very high, the constant temperature is 32 or 33 degrees, so many small lives are breathing, the humidity is relatively high, many microorganisms can't reproduce, and honey won't go bad.
----2. Honey in storage will only be 'saccharified' and will not go bad. Honey contains glucose, fructose, protein, enzyme, vitamin (В 2, В 6, РР, etc.) and many minerals. Fresh raw honey is thick and transparent, and it begins to crystallize and harden after a long time; therefore, the processed honey should be selected from the perspective of taste and nutrition. To determine whether the honey has been processed, put the spoon in and stir it, then take it up and observe. The raw honey will flow down from the spoon, and the processed honey will be pasted on the spoon like a rubber strip. Honey will be 'saccharified' naturally after a long time, but it will not deteriorate as a result. This thickening only shows that honey is of good quality. The color of honey varies from bright yellow (locust color) to dark brown (buckwheat color), some of which are green; the color, taste and fragrance of honey vary with the time and place of collection. Generally speaking, the dark honey contains several times more iron, copper and other minerals than other 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 to achieve effective preservation without too much worry.
