Flour is the queen of the kitchen. It is an essential ingredient for concocting delicious dishes or desserts. Its diversity of flavors, thanks to the different cereals used for its production, is a real culinary asset. This is not, however, its only function.

Although this use is little known, it can also be used in household chores. The latter, as explained earlier by Planet in this article, also helps absorb wine and grease stains, which makes cleaning many surfaces much easier.

Just be sure to store it well. If the shelf life generally extends from six months to a year, the conditions of its storage can greatly influence this period of time, indicates the media Health . It is therefore better to make sure how it is stored, at the risk of seeing moths and mold invade your pantry…

This is because flour is sensitive to fluctuations in temperature but also in humidity and light. Contrary to popular belief that it is a non-perishable element, it is actually subject to fermentation, informs the media cited above. So beware of changes in colors and smells… It may no longer be consumable.

To make sure we don’t waste any, Planet has made the slideshow below. It brings to your attention some advice on the conservation of this ingredient so essential to the preparation of your dishes, according to Santé et Femme d’Aujourd’hui.
