The durability of edible ink depends on a number of factors. Firstly, the composition of the ink has an important effect on its durability. Edible ink typically consists of food-grade coloring, alcohol, water, and other ingredients that help the ink adhere to the surfaces of foods. The better the stability and light resistance of food-grade pigments are, the longer the ink will last.

Secondly, the storage conditions of food are also the key factor affecting the durability of edible ink. If the food is stored in a dry, well-sealed environment with the right temperature, the color of the ink will last longer. High humidity, light, and extreme temperatures can all accelerate the fading or deterioration of the ink. Therefore, proper food storage is crucial to maintain the durability of edible ink.

In addition, the oil content of food also affects the durability of edible ink. Oils may dissolve or discolor ink, so the durability of edible ink may be shorter when used on foods with a higher oil content.

In practical applications, in order to ensure that edible ink maintain the best results on foods, it is recommended to follow the producer's guidelines and check the expiration date and quality of the ink before use. If possible, tests can be performed on a small portion of food to assess the persistence and effectiveness of the ink.

In short, the durability of edible ink depends on factors such as the composition of the ink, the storage conditions of foods, and the oil content foods. Correct selection and use of edible ink, and proper storage of foods, can maximize the persistence of ink on foods, making food look more appealing when displayed. With the development of food decorative arts, the application of edible ink will become more and more diverse, adding more color and creativity to our table.
