1. Each food has its temperature!

Did you know that the temperature is not uniform in your refrigerator? There are areas colder than others! For better conservation, food should be stored in your fridge, taking into account these temperature differences: * Between 0 ° C and 4 ° C: Meat, fish and dairy products. * Between 4 ° C and 6 ° C: Ready meals, pastries and cheeses. * Between 6 ° C and 8 ° C: Eggs and condiments. * Between 8 ° C and 10 ° C: Fruits and vegetables.


2. Put away your fridge, a matter of cleanliness!

Hygiene must be your first concern when storing your fridge. To limit the risks of bacterial proliferation, keep these tips in mind: * You never store fruits and vegetables covered with a film of earth in a fridge. * You never store a product that has been started without packaging it tightly. * Any suspicious stain should be cleaned before storing food in the refrigerator. * Do not neglect these simple measures! Your health is at stake ...

3. What packaging to store in your fridge?

Great consideration should be given to the issue of packaging. When storing your fridge, remember these few rules: * The packaging increases the energy consumption of your fridge: Those that are useless must therefore be thrown away. * Food packaging is sometimes soiled: Getting rid of it is therefore also a measure of hygiene. * Packaging occupies a significant place: This is hardly compatible with optimized storage of your fridge!

4. Store raw food in your fridge

© Martine Rigaudie By nature, raw foods are much more sensitive to the risk of bacterial contamination. They should therefore be stored in your fridge with care. Among the most useful tips: * Wrap any raw food in cling film, before putting it in the refrigerator. * Never leave raw food in contact with industrial packaging. This will limit the risk of contamination. * Do not store raw food beyond the prescribed time.

5. Store ready meals in your fridge

Are you a fine cordon bleu? We can only congratulate you! If you regularly cook good meals, know that you have to wait until they are completely cool before putting them in the fridge. There are two reasons for this: * A dish that is still hot would overstress the engine of your fridge, increasing the risk of long-term breakdown. * The heat given off by a cooked dish would encourage the proliferation of microorganisms in your fridge. So, beware!
