Butter, Oils, Sugar: Features and Storage
- Butter, oils, and sugar are crucial in food preparation and provide vital nutrition.
- Butter comes from milk, has saturated fat and vitamins A, D, and E, and enhances food texture and taste.
- Healthy oils include olive, sunflower, and rapeseed oils, all of which are filled with monounsaturated or polyunsaturated fats.
- Oils bring specific flavors to foods and are optimal for frying, baking, or dressing.
- Sugar serves as a natural sweetener, providing energy and flavor.
- Butter should be stored in the refrigerator, wrapped or in a covered container to keep it fresh and odor-free.
- Oils need to be stored in a cool, dark place away from heat and sunlight in a tightly sealed container to increase their longevity and maintain quality.
- Sugar should be stored in a cool, dry area in an airtight container to prevent humidity, clumping or contamination.
