Dpoll 42: Do you throw away what is over its expiry date?
Today I threw away a pot of Marmite.
It was 7 years over its expiry date. This was not the reason I threw it away but none of us like the taste and we do not know what to do with it.
As I was a child the expire date on articles did not exist. By now it is common. No matter what it is about, bandages, plasters, ink, soap, shampoo or food (exception fresh fruit, vegetables, nuts) there is or should be a fabrication date and expiring or "able to consume till at least" date on it.
"Expiring date" means it is so longer good.
"Able to consume at least till" means the manufacturer guarantees you can consume it till at least this date (you mainly see this on fresh products like diaries).
Tests proved food/articles are seldom spoiled.
Canned food is still good after twenty years and you will not get food poison by eating it. If it's spoiled it is already after it was produced.
There is a lot of food that cannot get spoiled at all.
Still these dates are printed on the products and people throw it away, even a big part of what they bought because it stood in the cupboard too long.
If I buy something I look at the date but once I bought it I do not care of my vacuum or canned food, the peanutbutter, flour, salt, oil, species, pasta, herbs or sugar is over the expiring date.
It's my nose and taste that tells me if I can eat it.
Do you easily throw away what is expired?
- Yes, days/weeks earlier
- Other, ... (please, say what!)
