    Hi Manju,
    I too get big bags of both Flour and rice.I Take out some and keep it in a container which i use daily.The remaining stays in the bag.I havent faced any problem with that.Its safe to keep it in the bag.Make sure that you close it tightly.

    Manju, keep what you are going to use daily or frequently in a separate container and keep the rest in the fridge or in the freezer.
    It works!
