Storage & Shelf Life
Because Bird Bread Mix contains no preservatives, some care is recommended for storage.
If the bag is opened, the top can be zipped closed or rolled down and closed with a chip clip for 4-6 weeks.
Bird Bread can be stored for 1 week in the refrigerator and 1 year in the freezer after baking.
Baked Bird Bread can be divided into portions, wrapped in plastic wrap and placed back in the original Harrison’s Bird Foods bag for storage in the freezer.
Bird Bread should not be reheated in a plastic container.
