You should keep dry food in its original container to maintain its freshness
You wouldn’t enjoy eating cereal from a box that’s been sitting opened on your counter for several days. Likewise, your pets probably wouldn’t appreciate the taste of stale kibble, either.
When it comes to storage, Dr. Heinze said it’s best to not pour dry food directly into a separate container.
She told INSIDER, “Kibble should always be stored in the bag it came in, tightly sealed. If you are going to put it into a plastic storage container, still keep in the bag – a lot of technology and expense goes into making bags that protect the food inside.”
Keeping it in the original bag also makes it easier to identify the batch in the event of a potential food recall.
