Each food has an ideal storage environment
The right balance of humidity and temperature is the key to effective longer-term fresh food storage. But since the demands of food can be quite different, knowing those different combinations are vital for storage effectiveness. For example, tropical fruit prefers higher humidity, while fish and seafood should be stored in a dry environment at a constant freezing point. Thankfully, with the flexibly of BioFresh’s adjustable compartments, optimal storage conditions can be achieved for any type of food! Here are some helpful tips on how to best store fresh food in Liebherr fridges:
Customised food storage with BioFresh
Tropical fruits are grown in humid and sunny conditions, so just storing then in a cold environment is not enough to keep them in a fresh state. They should be stored individually in a BioFresh HydroSafe, for higher humidity. What’s more, because they’re from temperate climates, allowing them to warm up to room temperature ensures their aromas and flavours are at their best. The ability to adjust the moisture setting also ensures delicate fruit can be stored for a long time, too!
Meat and dairy products
We all know that long term storage of meat isn’t easy, but not in a BioFresh DrySafe compartment. The low humidity and near-freezing temperature means they’ll maintain their fresh state for a significantly longer time than a conventional refrigerator. This type of arid condition is also ideal for the long-term storage of cheese.
Because vegetables have high-water content, they require a humid environment to stay fresh and crisp. Having them stored in the BioFresh HydroSafe compartment ensures a constant ‘just above’ 0°C temperature setting, as well as the moisture required for optimum storage. By hovering just above freezing, it means your vegetables won’t freeze or dry out, yet will maintain all their vital nutrients.
There’s a good reason why seafood dealers store their goods on ice: freezing point is their optimum storage state. Because fish and seafood can spoil quickly at the wrong temperature, it’s imperative they are kept at a constant frigid temperature. This makes the BioFresh DrySafe the most suitable solution, with a precise storage temperature of 0°C and a very arid environment. This means that seafood like tilapia, barramundi, or even abalone and cuttlefish, will remain fresh for a considerably longer time than any other refrigerator.
