Positive Storage Method Of Royal Jelly
Jan 21, 2019

Royal jelly is a kind of milk secreted by the right-age worker bees in the colony. It is named royal jelly because it is the food for the queen for life. Many people also have the habit of eating royal jelly to nourish their health. But it is difficult to finish the royal jelly in a short time. Let's take a look at the ways to ensure the existence of Royal jelly.
The PH value of royal jelly is about 3.5-4.5, which belongs to acidic and dense liquid as a whole. Therefore, it can not be stored in metal containers such as iron, aluminium and copper. The reason is that the chemical reaction between royal jelly and metal will affect the shelf life. It is better to choose non-toxic plastic or glass bottles, and to clean, disinfect and dry the containers before using them.
Temperature is an important factor affecting the shelf life of Royal jelly. According to the determination, royal jelly can only be stored for 3 days at room temperature. It can be stored for about half a year at 0-5 C, while royal jelly can be stored for more than 2 years in the freezing environment of - 18 C. Therefore, it is better to keep royal jelly in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator for short-term preservation, but if long-term preservation is needed, it should be placed in the freezer compartment of the refrigerator.
Royal jelly is very sensitive to light, because light can promote the reduction of ketones and aldehydes in Royal jelly, thus accelerating the deterioration of royal jelly and losing its edible value. Therefore, royal jelly must be stored in a dark environment. In addition, the containers for royal jelly should not be selected with good transmittance. It is better to choose brown, black glass bottles or milky white non-toxic plastic bottles to preserve it.
Air contains a lot of water and microorganisms, which are also important factors affecting the quality of Royal jelly. For example, when water is mixed into Royal jelly, the quality of royal jelly will be greatly shortened. Moreover, if microorganisms are rich in air, the deterioration rate of royal jelly will be accelerated. Therefore, royal jelly must be sealed well when it is preserved. Beeswax is best to seal the bottle mouth for long-term preservation.
Royal jelly is very sensitive to acid and alkali (the royal jelly itself is weak acidic). Both acidic and alkaline environments will accelerate the deterioration of Royal jelly. Therefore, the containers for preserving royal jelly must be thoroughly cleaned and dried. In addition, the spoon must be cleaned and dried. In fact, in many cases, premature deterioration of royal jelly is caused by careless use.

Summary: Although the shelf life of royal jelly is shorter than that of honey, and there are many factors leading to the deterioration of Royal jelly, as long as it is preserved according to the characteristics of Royal jelly, it can actually be preserved for a long time. In addition, water or other pollutants should not be brought into royal jelly when used.
