When our friends at Fair Go asked us about best before dates for old spices, or molasses that was ten years old, we called in our expert – Toni!
Best before date is exactly that! The food is best before that date but still safe to eat after this date, as long as you use your senses. Use by dates are a different story!
Watch our segment on Fair Go where we talk about the difference and give some basic guidelines on best-before dates.
