The Benefits of Storing Food In Linen

Did you know that the breathability of linen makes it an ideal fabric for storing bread & other foods?

Linen is a wonderful, sustainably made option that’s reusable, which of course means it’s UASHMAMA approved.  We love a good linen bag because they are so versatile and provide a range of uses. 

 It’s especially true when dealing with bread.  Often times when people think about storing food, their initial instinct is to cover it as tightly as possible.  With bread specifically, linen will allow air circulation that prevents moisture buildup and mold growth.  Your bread needs to breathe as it naturally has a high moisture content. If it is kept in a sealed container, it will soon get moldy, however a linen bread bag helps to stop this and will keep bread fresh for longer. 


 Don’t limit yourself to using your linen bread bag for just bread though!  Linen is also an ideal material for storing all sorts of other household food items.  Regularly consumed perishable foods like fruits and vegetables also keep extremely well when stored in linen.  Linen bags can help to keep sensitive items like lettuces, herbs and leafy greens fresh and crisp.  Cheese is another product that will keep well in linen.  Of course, baked goods, muffins and pastries will reap the same preserving effects as bread.


A primary reason we love a good linen storage bag is due to its reusability, cutting down on the need for single-use plastic and storage bags.  When not using to store perishable food items, it makes a great lunch bag easily transportable to the office, the park or the beach.  Our Linen Fiocco bread bag easily ties in a not making it convenient to carry and keep your snacks and food fresh while on the go.    


 Did you know that linen is antimicrobial and antibacterial?  This means it provides a sub-par breeding ground for bacteria. 

 It’s washable, allowing for continued and varied use throughout your home and lifestyle.  Another great step in achieving a zero-waste mindset.

 They’re pretty!  Harmful, crinkly plastic wrap or a beautiful linen accent to your countertop?  I think I’ll choose the latter.  Our linen bread bag is a beautiful accent to your table, a pleasant sight in your refrigerator and a stylish lunch bag.  

 Say goodbye to the struggle of keeping bread and perishables fresh for good and get yourself a linen bread bag (or two of three).  You’ll reap the benefits, help the planet, and add some style to your kitchen all at onceAnd don't forget to tag us in your Instagram photos @uashmama.usa with #Uashmamastyle.
