Tricks for keeping tomato paste for a long time
1. Store the paste in the freezer
The best way to store tomato paste for a long time and prevent it from mold is to put the paste in the freezer. This way you can safely store your tomato paste for several months. The best way to put the paste in the freezer is to pour the tomato paste into the freezer bag and spread it. So that the thickness of the paste layer is about one centimeter. In this way, you can easily separate one piece of frozen paste for each use and put the rest in the freezer. Make sure the freezer temperature keeps the tomato paste healthy for months.
۲. Keep the paste in a glass container
The best container for storing tomato paste is a glass container; Therefore, it is better to transfer its contents to a glass container immediately after opening the can. Because the possibility of a reaction between one of the components of the food composition (especially acidic material) with the metal wall of the inner wall of the can is high. Using this solution is essential for all cans such as canned fruits, canned corn, etc. that need long storage.
3. Pour a thin layer of oil on the paste
As mentioned, the most important cause of mold on the surface of tomato paste is its reaction with oxygen in the air. One of the old ways of storing tomato paste at home is to pour a thin layer of oil on the paste container. This will stop the oxygen supply to the tomato paste and the paste will no longer mold.
4. Put the paste in small containers
If you have prepared the paste in large quantities, be sure to store the paste in small containers with doors, after opening it in the main container, and store it on the upper floors of the refrigerator. It is best to use specially designed jars for holding the paste, which have a ring and fastener around it, to prevent air from entering as much as possible. Also, do not pour the tomato paste into the container at once, but no matter how many spoons you pour, move the spoon linearly in the container several times so that there is no bubble or air space under the paste to cause mold and spoilage of the paste in the future.
5. Clean and dry with a spoon
An old advice for storing tomato paste for a long time and preventing it from becoming moldy is to use a clean, dry spoon to remove the paste; Therefore, it is recommended that you never put a greasy or wet spoon in your paste container.
Consumption of moldy paste is prohibited!
Consumption of any food that is moldy is harmful to health, and even removing the moldy part and the rest of it that looks healthy is not recommended. When a food becomes moldy, it indicates the presence of fungus in it, so even if you remove the moldy part from the paste, there is a possibility of fungal spores and toxins in the rest of the paste. Since fungal spores are not visible to the naked eye and the toxin can only be detected by chemical testing, it is a mistake to assume that it is safe to use because it is no longer visible inside the mold. During their growth, molds produce a substance called mycotoxin, which is harmful to human health. Experts have shown that mycotoxins can cause chronic diseases in the long run, and some types may cause liver cancer. Molds grow in hot, humid environments, so the first step in preventing food from becoming moldy is to keep them in a cool, dry environment.
