Bokashi bran contains billions of living microbes. It is important to store your bokashi bran correctly so that all this fantastic microbial life remains healthy and ready to ferment your food waste.
Our bokashi bran is thoroughly dried before we ship it. The drying process puts the bokashi microbes into a dormant state so that the bran can be stored for longer periods of time.
How to store your bokashi bran
- Keep the bran in an airtight container. The resealable bags and large blue bins that we use to ship the bokashi bran are ideal. If you do need to change the container make sure not to use any biodegradable containers such as paper or waxed paper bags.
- Keep the bokashi bran out of direct sunlight. The ultraviolet light will destroy the microbes.
- Store the bokashi bran within a few degrees of room temperature. Extreme heat or cold may kill the bokashi microbes.
- Keep the bokashi bran dry.
If you follow the above steps you will be able to store our bokashi bran for 1-2 years.
