Storing Bread: Freezing vs. Refrigeration

January 15th, 2010

Knowing the proper way to store bread is an incredibly vital factor for making sure you get that “fresh from the oven” taste every time you eat. So, when you’re buying your bread in bulk, here are some tips on how to keep your bread as fresh as it can be:

Freezing:

Properly wrapped bread will last in the freezer for about three months. Freezing actually enhances the quality of certain bread products and is an ideal way to control inventory. You can even take out a slice at a time and toast or thaw for sandwiches. When thawing, take the bread out of the wrapper and allow it to warm to room temperature.

Refrigeration:

While this may surprise some of you, refrigeration is actually the worst thing you can do to bread! It dries it out within a week making it coarse and crumbly for sandwiches.

So if you don’t have a big household or you just like buying lots of different kinds of bread, the best thing to do is buy one of our half loaves. This way you can have just the right amount of white bread, wheat bread or even both without the loss of freshness or waste.
