Dried Fruit Tin Storage Conditions

December 08 , 2023

Storing dried fruit in a tin can extend its shelf life, but there are still some key factors that need attention to ensure the quality and safety of the food. Here are some suggested storage conditions and times:


1. Storage conditions :

Moisture resistance: Dried fruit tends to absorb moisture, so when stored in tin, make sure the tin is well sealed to prevent moisture from entering.

Tightness: The tightness of the tin is very important to prevent moisture and air from entering. Make sure the lid is tightly closed and properly closed after each use.

Avoid light: try to place the tin in a light environment to prevent sunlight or strong light from negatively affecting the quality of food.

Odor-proof: The tin can prevent odors from entering, but in order to maximize the taste of the food, avoid placing objects with strong odors nearby.

Temperature: It is best to store food in a dry, ventilated place to avoid exposure to extreme temperatures.

Cleaning: Before using a new tin, make sure to clean it thoroughly to remove any residue that may have a negative effect on food.


Avoid light: Dried fruit is best stored in a dark environment to prevent sunlight or strong light from affecting its color and taste.

Temperature: The storage temperature is ideally between 10°C (50°F) and 20°C (68°F). Avoid placing dried fruit in an environment that is too hot or too cold to affect texture and taste.

Ventilation: Ensure that the storage area has proper ventilation to prevent mold growth.

Isolation of odor: Dried fruit has a strong ability to absorb odor, so it is best to store it in a non-absorptive container, such as a dry, odor-free tin.


2. Storage time :

Nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts) : Under proper storage conditions, nuts can usually be stored for months to a year. Different types of nuts may have a different shelf life.

Raisins, goji berries and other small fruits: usually keep for six months to a year, depending on the specific storage conditions.

Dried fruit mixture: If dried fruit is mixed together, it is best to label the packaging date on the jar and carefully check the shelf life of each dried fruit before use.

Please note that the above times are general recommendations only and the specific shelf life may be affected by storage conditions, product type and packaging. When storing dried fruit, keep an eye out for signs of deterioration, such as odor, mold, etc., and eat the product as early as possible before it expires.


How long food is stored depends on a variety of factors, including the type of food, storage conditions and whether the jar has been opened. Here are some general guidelines:
Canned vegetables and fruits: can usually be stored for one to two years under proper storage conditions. Open cans of food should be eaten in a short time.
Meat and poultry: Canned meat and poultry can be stored for two to five years under proper storage conditions. Again, once opened, it is best to eat as soon as possible.
Dry foods: Dry foods (such as flour, sugar, coffee, etc.) can usually be stored for several years under good storage conditions.
Canned soups and other liquid foods: can usually be stored for one to two years under proper storage conditions.
