Can candies be kept in the refrigerator? To preserve candy, the refrigerator is not the place of choice. Many people like to store candy in the refrigerator. Although candy is afraid of high temperature, if it is stored in the refrigerator for a long time, it will absorb the taste of other ingredients in the refrigerator and make the candy taste bad. It is not a long-term solution. Here are two ways to store candy to try. How to store candy Iron box storage Ordinary candies can be stored in iron boxes for no more than half a year, and candies with more fat and protein can also be stored in iron boxes for no more than three months. Lose. Glass bottle cryogenic storage Candy is afraid of heat and moisture. It can be put into glass bottles and stored in a place where the indoor temperature is low and not humid. Tips: Candy should not be placed in a place exposed to sunlight, nor can it be stored at the same time as food with too much moisture. Whether it is stored in a tin box or in a glass, attention should be paid to it. Shelf life of candy The shelf life of candy is generally 6 months, and it will be 1-2 months shorter in summer. When the average temperature in summer and autumn is above 30°C and the humidity is high, the shelf life of all kinds of gelatinous candies shall not exceed 12 months, and the shelf life of hard candies shall not exceed 12 months.

As one of the two traditional pillar snack industries in my country, the candy industry has maintained rapid growth and its potential market share has continued to expand. In the past five years, my country's candy market has maintained an annual growth rate of 8%-12%. In 2011, the scale of my country's candy industry has reached 62 billion yuan. When the domestic candy industry develops and expands, various types of candies such as health-care, low-sugar, fun and ecological candies in the world are accelerating their pace to collectively attack the candy market in my country. In contrast, the products in my country's candy market appear to be very single. Under the dual pressure of pressing foreign companies and fierce competition from domestic companies, product development in my country's candy industry faces many obstacles. The competition of domestic candy companies mainly stays on the price level, and the development of new fields is obviously insufficient compared with foreign capital. The phenomenon of product homogeneity has seriously hindered the competition between domestic candy companies and foreign brands, making their profits far less than foreign brands, and the main battlefield of domestic brands has also been forced to sink to the secondary and tertiary markets. It is worth noting that the global annual per capita consumption of candy is about 3 kilograms, while my country is only 0.7 kilograms, so my country's candy market has huge development potential. The breakthrough of domestic enterprises should focus on the upgrading of products, constantly launching new products, and constantly enriching product varieties. my country's candy industry is facing the demand pattern of small products and large markets. Candy production enterprises are in the stage of structural adjustment, product renewal, survival of the fittest and corporate restructuring. As the market operation of confectionery is completed from product competition to marketing, the candy industry has entered the era of brand competition.
