10 Foods, Safe To Eat Past Expiration!

start exploring

1) Yogurt

If stored properly (i.e., below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or 5 degrees Celsius), yogurt can be eaten for up to two weeks after its "sell by" date.

2) Fresh Pasta

After the sell-by date on the package, fresh uncooked pasta that has been refrigerated and stored in an unopened package is still safe to eat.

3) Eggs

Keeping raw eggs in the refrigerator for their entire storage time can extend the "sell by," "use by," or "expiration" date on the carton by about three weeks.

4) Hot dogs

Unopened hot dogs have a 10-day shelf life after their expiration date. When they're done cooking, make sure they don't have any off flavors or smells.

5) Shelf-stable Pasteurized milk

This milk has a one-month shelf life after the expiration date, or six months if unopened and stored at room temperature.

6) Boxed soups & purees

Soups of all varieties, when left unopened and stored in a dry, cool place, can taste just as good three to five years after their expiration date.

7) Frozen vegetables

10 to 12 months after the expiration date printed on the bag, frozen vegetables stored at a constant freezing temperature will still be in excellent condition.

8) Spices

Four years is a typical shelf life for whole spices, three to four years for ground spices, and one year for dried and leafy herbs.

9) Canned foods

It is common knowledge that canned goods with an unbroken seal have an indefinite shelf life, regardless of the "use by" date.

10) Whole-Wheat Flour

Stored properly, whole wheat flour has a shelf life of 1-3 months at room temperature, 6-8 months in the fridge, and a full year in the freezer.
