Food Storage Recommendations
Pellet Foods:Pellet foods should be kept in a cool dry place. Cool (under 72°F or 22°C) and a relative humidity of between 25% and 50%. With these requirements met your food should last up to 3 months from date of purchase.
Refrigeration seems like a great idea- but moisture driven into the food by the removal and replacement in the refrigerator can lead to food breakdown and molding. If refrigeration is used correctly (only take out of the refrigerator what is need for that days meals) you can expect the same shelf life as the above storage method (cool dry place)
Freezing is a great way to extend the shelf life of your Exotic Nutrition foods. Not only does it hamper food break down and mold growth, it also helps slow the natural disintegration of vitamins and nutrients. There is a catch- the food must not be constantly exposed to the freeze thaw cycle. Our recommendation is to take a week or two worth of food out of the freezer at a time. This can be stored in the refrigerator or in a cool dry place. Using this method, Exotic Nutrition Diets should last 6 months from date of purchase.
It is not recommended that Exotic Nutrition pellet diets be used after 6 months. Although not dangerous, the nutritional value after 6 months deteriorates very rapidly.
Canned or Jar foodsOnce opened, store canned or jarred foods in your refrigerator. They will store refrigerated for 14 days. If you wish to store longer ... we suggest that you freeze. Canned or Jar foods will store frozen for up to one year.
Dried InsectsDried insects can be stored at room temp. under 72°F for 6 months. If temperatures go above 72 degrees F ... we suggest that you store the dried insects in your refrigerator.
