14 Foods Never To Be Refrigerated

Many people mistakenly believe that putting some food in the refrigerator will prolong their life and avoid wasting. But in reality, they only harm the quality of these products and alter their taste. Unique, each commodity consumed must be conserved according to its individual composition. Some food products maintain better taste and nutritional quality if not stored in the refrigerator. 

Some fruits and vegetables, for example, taste much better when stored at room temperature because the cold accelerates their deterioration, interrupts their maturation process and alters their taste and abuses their tastes and odors.

Here is a list of 14 foods that should not be refrigerated:

Bananas
Very sensitive to cold, bananas should be stored at room temperature to prevent them from turning black when ripe or freezing. If you want to keep them green longer, you can put them in the refrigerator or in a paper bag.

Onions
Keep them in a dry, cool and dark place to prevent them from softening under the humidity of the fridge. In this way, they will preserve their nutritional and taste qualities.

You can, however, keep a freshly cut onion in the refrigerator a few days without any problem.

It is advisable to keep the avocado in a dry place at room temperature, until it stops. Then it can be put in the refrigerator, to stop the process of maturation.

On the other hand, if you want to ripen it quickly, place it next to certain fruits such as apples or bananas that release a natural gas called ethylene (it accelerates the maturation process of neighboring fruits).

Garlic
The effect of the cold causes the garlic to germinate and makes its rubbery pods. It is best to place this food in a dry, ventilated and dark place.

Eggs
Contrary to popular belief, eggs should be stored at room temperature and not fresh. Refrigerated, the shell absorbs the surrounding odors, which can alter the taste of the egg.

Bread
To keep the bread fresh and to prevent it from drying, wrap it in a thick cloth and keep it at room temperature in a dry place. Avoid storing your bread in the refrigerator. If you want to keep it longer, place it in the freezer.

Tomatoes
The cold tends to break the cell walls of the tomato, making it bland and farinaceous. If you want it to keep its taste and flavor, keep it away from the refrigerator. The best solution is to buy in small quantities and keep them in the kitchen.

Honey
Rich in sugar, honey is a product that can be kept naturally for many years provided it is kept in a sealed container away from light. Fresh, it crystallizes, hardens and becomes difficult to use.

Melons
By depositing the whole melon in the refrigerator, it loses its antioxidants. It is best to keep it at room temperature in a dry place.

Tomato ketchup
Ketchup contains a lot of salt, vinegar and sugar. These natural preservatives allow it to be stored at room temperature, provided of course to keep the product only a few days in a room at less than 20 degrees.

Potatoes :
The potatoes, put in the refrigerator, lose their taste and their texture is altered. They become granular and sweeter. It is therefore advisable to keep them in a dark and cool place.

Citrus
Placed in the refrigerator, some citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons and mandarins are delivered to the moisture of the latter. For a better conservation, put them in a dry place, not too hot and avoid that they do not touch each other or that they are not in contact with another variety of fruits.

Cucumbers
Low temperatures cucumber the cucumber and damage its texture. If you put it in the refrigerator's drawer, its taste may be altered. Keep it in the vegetable basket, out of the refrigerator.

Carrots
Inadequate to cope with cold, the carrots rot quickly and become watery. It is best to put them in a sheltered place and place them in a holed plastic bag so that they keep their moisture (lifetime 1 to 3 weeks).

Jam
Designed to be kept for a period of time, it is not necessary to store unopened jam jars in the refrigerator. Just keep them tightly closed in a clean, dry place.

Nuts :
No need to put them in the refrigerator, the nuts can be kept in a cool and dark place.

Coffee :
It is strongly advised not to put the coffee in the refrigerator because its taste will deteriorate. The latter will also capture the odors of food stored in the refrigerator. To keep it in better condition, place it in a sealed jar and put it in a dry place.
