Q. 7 B5.0( 1 Vote )

Classify the following items based on the storage methods.

(Apple, Wheat, Potato, Rice, Grape, Sorghum)


Answer :


COLD STORAGE: Fruits and vegetables contain a lot of moisture. This favours the growth of microorganisms that may spoil the food. Hence, they must be stored in cold storage. Since the microorganisms find it difficult to grow well in cold temperatures, the food can be preserved for longer periods


DRY STORAGE: Grains such as wheat, rice and sorghum do not contain much moisture as seeds are dry. They must be preserved in an environment that prevents exposure to moisture. (Even air contains a lot of moisture in the form of spread out water molecules). Hence, they are stored in dry environments such as jute bags, godowns, silos, etc.
