01/6Easy ways to store Ragi grains/ flour for a long time
Ragi is one of the most popular and versatile millets, which can be used in several interesting ways in cooking day-to-day meals. But there are times when the ragi grain/flour clumps up, when stored for a long time. Here are some simple ways to retain the freshness of ragi grains and flour flour for a long time and avoid clumping.
02/6Proper cleaning and drying
Ensure that the ragi grains are clean and dry before milling them into flour. Any residual moisture can contribute to mold growth during storage.
03/6Avoid exposure to air
Avoid opening the container several times, this will prevent exposure to air, which can lead to oxidation and loss of freshness. When not in use, make sure the container is tightly sealed.
Always ensure that the ragi flour and grains are stored in a cool and dry place to maintain a consistent temperature. Fluctuations in temperature can contribute to the development of moisture and condensation inside the container and spoil the taste and texture of the millet.
Store the container away from direct sunlight. Exposure to sunlight can lead to nutrient loss and affect the quality of the flour.
06/6Quality storage container
Ensure using a food-grade container for storing ragi flour. Containers with airtight seals are especially effective in preventing air and moisture from entering.
