Never refrigerate chocolate/ This is why

According to chocolate expert Luke Owen Smith, your cakes should never be kept in the fridge, even when the weather is warm.

Luke, who owns an online shop called Chocolate Bar, told Stuff in New Zealand that the lower temperature messes with the taste.

He said that chilling chocolate in the fridge makes it "dull" and "doesn't release the flavors".

He added: “Extremely cold temperatures can mess with temperature as much as hot temperatures can.

Instead, chocolate should be stored in a cool, dark cupboard, preferably between 10 and 20 degrees C – with 15 degrees C being the perfect temperature.

Luka says that it should only be put in the fridge if the temperature inside the house reaches 28C.

Since cocoa butter absorbs flavors and aromas, he recommends storing in an airtight container before refrigerating to protect the flavor.

Another reason to keep foods out of the fridge is something called "sugar bloom".

This happens when it is cooled and then exposed to warmer air, causing condensation on the surface that dissolves some of the sugar.

This will then recrystallize, leaving a surface layer of white grains. /CNA.al
