Tips

  • How long do whole wheat rolls last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep whole wheat rolls or rolls in a cool, dry area.
  • To maximize the shelf life of whole wheat rolls, keep in original packaging and store at room temperature.
  • How long do whole wheat rolls last at room temperature? Properly stored, whole wheat rolls will last for about 7 days at normal room temperature.
  • In extremely warm, humid temperatures, whole wheat rolls should be frozen for longer-term storage.
  • How long do whole wheat rolls last in the fridge? Whole wheat rolls should ideally not be refrigerated, as they will dry out and become stale faster than storage at room temperature.
  • Can you freeze whole wheat rolls? Yes, to freeze: Place the buns in a heavy-duty freezer bag or wrap the buns tightly with aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap and freeze.
  • How long do whole wheat rolls last in the freezer? Properly stored, they will maintain best quality for about 3 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only - whole wheat rolls that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How to tell if whole wheat rolls are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the rolls or buns: discard any rolls or buns that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the entire package.
