While it's tempting to leave grains in the packet you bought them in, they should be transferred to an airtight container and kept in a cool, dark place to optimise their shelf-life and prevent infestation.
Since consumers are not told the date of harvest, it's best to use grains within one year of purchase, and ideally within three to six months. For this reason, it's preferable to buy grains little and often rather than in bulk.
Grains are high in protein and therefore a valuable part of a vegan diet.
