First, we need to understand the basic structure of chocolate. Chocolate is mainly composed of cocoa solids, cocoa butter, sugar and milk powder. These ingredients will affect the storage time of chocolate under different conditions.

How long chocolate is kept depends on a number of factors, including the type of chocolate, storage conditions, and whether other ingredients have been added. In general, if chocolate is stored properly, it can last for months or even longer.

In order to prolong the storage time of chocolate prints, we need to pay attention to the following points:

  • Temperature: Ideally, chocolate should be stored between 16°C and 20°C to avoid temperature fluctuations. Too high temperature may cause the chocolate to become soft or marbled, while too low temperature may cause the chocolate to appear frosting or change color.

  • Humidity: The storage humidity of chocolate should be kept at a relatively low level, preferably between 50% and 60%. High humidity can cause the chocolate to absorb moisture and become soft, and even appear white frosting (icing).

  • Light: Chocolate should be stored away from direct sunlight, as UV rays can accelerate the aging of chocolate.

  • Ventilation: The place where the chocolate is stored should have good ventilation to avoid moisture and odors.

  • Moisture-proof: It is best to store the chocolate in a sealed moisture-proof container or package to prevent the absorption of moisture.

  • Odor-proof: Chocolate easily absorbs the odors of the surrounding environment, so storing it with strongly smelling foods or chemicals should be avoided.

Overall, how long chocolate prints are kept after printing depends on a variety of factors. Therefore, in order to maintain the best flavor and texture of chocolate, we should pay attention to the storage conditions of chocolate, avoid high temperature, high humidity, light and odor. In this way, we can enjoy the delicious taste of chocolate with unique printed patterns. Finally, if you have demands on printing machine for chocolates, you can contact Foodprinttech.
