Can you eat food past the best before date?
When it comes to pushing the line of the best before and use by dates of foods, most kitchens and consumers at home find this to be a grey area. In all honesty, even experts cannot agree if this is a solid line that should not be crossed or if it's okay to push the limits. There is also an increasing question about food security and preventing the wastage of food. Considering this, it then becomes important to consider when to save food and when to chuck it.
Unfortunately, in many countries, the food labelling laws are still quite ambiguous. This allows the manufacturer to use either dates without clearly defining the meaning.
