Why Food Expiration Dates Aren’t Telling You the Truth
What is your goal when purchasing your food at the grocery store? You may follow these simple rules:
1. Buy lots of fruits and vegetables.
2. Simply, bring your food home, and eat it.
For nine out of 10 Americans, food goes directly from their shopping cart to the kitchen and then into the garbage, according to a survey by the Food Marketing Institute.
This is in direct correlation to the food expiration dates on your food product labels, the labels that say “sell by,” best by,” “use by,” and “best before.” Is there a chance that you’re tossing out perfectly good food because these dates are misleading you?
