Much food is being thrown away every year and its worth is thousands of dollars. The indication of the safety of the food is usually the expiration date, even though it is not always what it seems.

The National Resource Defense Council claims that the “Sell by” dates do not show if foods are safe to consume – but they simply predict how long an item should be kept in stock. Also, the terms such as “Use by” and “best by” only show the date that the manufacturer of the product thinks the product itself has reached peak freshness, and that they do not show spoilage.

So When Does Food Actually Go Bad?

A nice rule of thumb is to notice when you bought or opened the food, instead of only noticing the indication of the packaging.

Continue reading this article so that you find out what the real expiration dates for some of your favorite foods are.

Uncooked Poultry

If the chicken is raw, you can store it in the fridge for one to two days after you have bought it. But, you can also freeze it and keep it in the freezer up to nine months.

Eggs

Eggs can be kept in the basket. Once you buy the eggs, you can store them for about three to five weeks. In case you freeze them, you can keep them up to one year time.

Peanut Butter

If you keep the boxed chocolate at room temperature, it is going to last for about six to nine months. If you freeze it, it can last up to eighteen months.

Milk

This product often lasts one week more after the “sell by” date. However, if you want to be on the safe side, you should always smell the milk before you consume it. If the milk has sour smell or if it has become off-white, you should throw it away.

Yogurt

If the yogurt you have bought is commercially packed, you can keep it for nearly one to three weeks after the “sell by” date. If you freeze it, it can last one to two months more than the expiration date indicates.

Fish

The salmon that has not been opened can last one to two days from the purchase date. Nevertheless, by freezing the salmon at the day of purchase, you will prolong its usage for two to three months more and it is still going to have great taste.

Wine
