How to store: Store the flour in an air tight steel or glass container. Ideally it is advised to consume any flour within 30 days of milling. This is more so in case of our flour, which is not treated by any chemicals for increasing shelf life. In the absence of any chemical treatment such flour is more prone to catch worm infestation too. So, buy in small quantity and consume it well in time.
