Did you know? Here's what foods are safe to eat after their expiration date

Did you know? Here's what foods are safe to eat after their expiration date

Is it safe to eat food after the expiration date? When is it "safe" to ignore recommendations? As the NYT points out in their article, an important thing for consumers to keep in mind is that expiration dates do not expire (with the exception of baby food).

Date marking is not about product safety, but is when the manufacturer decides the product is no longer of the highest quality, whatever that means, the article points out.

Food manufacturers also tend to be quite conservative with their expiration dates. This is because we don't always store our food in shady and cool places and often leave the fridge door open for longer than necessary.

What foods should we not worry about?

Honey, vinegar, sugar and vanilla are foods that keep for a long time with little change in quality. White flour also tastes great no matter how long it sits in the pantry. The same goes for rice, but unlike brown rice, it is unprocessed and has a shelf life of several months.

Bread bought in supermarkets stays soft in the fridge for weeks because it contains preservatives, but sourdough bread does not.

Dried beans and lentils can be safely eaten for years after purchase, but they become hard and take longer to cook.

Spices last in the pantry past the expiration date, but they don't taste as strong.

As a rule, metals last longer than glass and longer than plastic.

As long as there are no external signs of spoilage (e.g. rust) or visible damage when the product is opened (e.g. mold or bad smell), canned fruit, vegetables and meat can remain just as good. as delicious as when bought many years ago.

Unrefined oil in airtight containers also has a longer shelf life if the bottles are not made of glass.

In any case, as the NYT article points out, the best way to tell if food is safe to eat is ultimately… our nose.
