StillTasty – Keep It or Toss It?

Posted on Monday, February 1st, 2010 by

stilltasty StillTasty – My mother is a postharvest researcher of fruit and vegetables, and as far as I’m concerned, this makes her the superior authority on all things produce.  Whenever I would take out something from the fridge with a day or two past the Use Before date, I’d ask her for the final verdict on whether it was OK to eat it or not. As a child it always seemed odd to me that the printed date on products are rather inaccurate, but I never questioned my mom because you know as well as I do that mother knows best…

StillTasty eliminates any uncertainty regarding the freshness bar of all produce products; type in any food item or beverage and get solid answers on how long you can keep it in the fridge or freezer before it gets spoiled. The results are remarkable – I was surprised to see how these concurred on my mom’s estimations. I checked for example milk, cheese, chicken and Coca-Cola, and was shocked to see that in many of the cases I can keep these quite longer than their respective expiration date. While exploring StillTasty I also found these two interesting articles which I strongly recommend that you read: 3 Ways to Defrost Food Safely and Expiration Dates: Should You Pay Attention?
