As we all are finding more shelves empty at the grocery store we are searching our pantry, fridge and freezer to see what we can use. How long have you had the food, does it have an expiration date, sell by date, best used before date? Some of this can get confusing and no one wants to throw away good food nor do we want to eat spoiled food.
We want to help break it down so you know what is still good to eat at your house before you toss it in the trash! Best if Used By/Before is listed in regards to quality and taste, not in regards to safety or spoilage. Sell-By date is again not in regards to safety, instead this is for the store to maintain inventory in how long to keep on their shelves for sale. Use-By is similar to Best if Used By, except for infant formula it’s not listed under safety, it’s in reference to having the best quality. Freeze-By date is for a consumer to maintain top quality of the food, therefore freezing will help preserve that. See the full article on the most common foods you have, bread, eggs, canned goods, frozen vegetables and more to help you figure out what is still good!
