How to Store Bread (the ROYO way)

Frustrating Kitchen Situations 101: you go to your favorite grocery store and pick out a delicious, fresh loaf of bread. Mmm… delicious. You get excited, making gourmet avocado toast for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and then forget about it. A few mornings later, you walk into the kitchen, rushing to make a sandwich to take to work with you, and you realize your bread has gone totally stale. Or started growing things (ew). Lunch plans = ruined.

It happens to the best of us. Bread is one food item that can quickly move past its peak, and large loaves aren’t always consumed in that timeframe. What’s more, lots of us are unaware of the best ways to store bread in order to extend its shelf life for as long as possible.

That’s why we’re here! To give you some top bread storing tips:

1)    Freeze  store everything in the freezer and just pop the items in the toaster when you want to consume!

2)    Divide and conquer – cut your bread into sections and only keep enough out to realistically consume within a few days. Freeze the rest, and gradually defrost to eat.

3)    Location, location, location – if you don’t have a freezer, choose a cool, dry location for optimal storage!


While the above methods are great when it comes to your run-of-the-mill, store-bought bread, when it comes to ROYO, it’s a different story. Throw your traditional storage methods out the window. Why? Because ROYO bread is anything but traditional!

Because of the lack of preservatives and artificial ingredients found in ROYO bread (that are present in most standard breads), it’s necessary to treat your products a little differently. We recommend transferring ROYO products to the freezer as soon as you get them. Please do not leave them out on your countertop – they just weren’t made for that! 

In the freezer, ROYO bread will stay at peak freshness for up to 9 months. Low Carb Bread loaves come pre-sliced for your convenience, so you can pull out a few slices at a time. Let defrost naturally or pop a slice directly in the toaster on its lowest setting for a quick hack. If you’re looking for that satisfying toasted crunch, go one setting higher than you normally would and toast from frozen.
