    Default Safety of After Sell-by date Foods

    Here is an interesting article on the safety of using food after the
    "seel-by" date, including milk, meat, other fresh stuff and really old
    cans of food.

    I'll still go by the dates. I know that my expired canned tomatoes had a
    very bad texture. And my bread goes moldy the day after it expires.

    I freeze whole wheat bread and butter.

    Me too. My kids like their bread less grainy then mine so I leave theirs
    in the fridge. I live in the sub-tropics and learned the hard way that
    bread couldn't be left at room temp for long.

    I sometimes freeze leftover bread for stuffing. But I won't eat it as is.
    For me the texture changes too much.

    Here, I only seem to have a problem when it's really rainy.

    I almost always freeze the low carb bread as itis not alwasy in the stores
    so i like to have some in reserve. It also keeps well inthe fridge, which
    surprised me as it is saidin advice columns that you shouldn't refrigerate
    bread because it doesn't help. I don't find this advice to be true for
    the low carb breads, at least.

    I also keep canned goods way beyond the pull dates and have not found any
    problems or real change in texture.

    I always have an assortment of them in my freeer too. No loss of
    enjoyment here.

    It's not true for any bread I ever buy. It helps a lot.

    I don't, if they get close, I donate things I won't use soon.

    I keep unopened yogurt in the fridge for months past the sell by or best
    by date; it keeps perfectly, and is zero carb at that point. Opened, it
    goes faster. I also keep heavy cream weeks past the date, it's in the
    coldest part of my very cold fridge and keeps very well, unopened.

    The low carb store here keeps the low carb bread frozen. But I have never
    tried it.

    I did read recently that if you keep yogurt beyond its sell by date, the
    active cultures will be diminished to gone.

    : I did read recently that if you keep yogurt beyond its sell by date, the
    : active cultures will be diminished to gone.

    That would likely be because they have eaten all the sugar in the milk
    used to make the yogurt so there would be fewer carbs in it. Depends why
    you eat the yogurt whether this mkes a difference for an individual.

    : The low carb store here keeps the low carb bread frozen. But I have never
    : tried it.

    Wow, a low carb store!! I wish we had something like that in my
    neighborhood. Once low carb diets went out of fashion much of the great
    stuff that had been available just disappeared evcept for the pitas and
    the occasional bread.

    It's a weird store. Low carb plus gluten free. They have nothing we would
    buy in the low carb section. It's almost all loaded with soy. They do have
    fauxtatoes.
