means the food is not dangerous to eat after the date but is not at its BEST.. A day or two after its Best Before Dates won't hurt if kept in good condition. The Big Question?
What Is Good Condition?
1- Clean Neat Storage (air tight food containers, food cupboard) free from dirt,dust and damn. Hmmmmmmmm....still remember the last time you cleaned it. I'm guilty on this one
2. Fridge- free from dirt and dust (how often do you clean your fridge/freezer? still scratching your head??)
of food items:
Rice, pasta, cooking oil (palm oil and ground nut oil), sugar, coffee, seasonings etcs.
With Reference to humans, in other words,
the younger the more desirable, as you get older, you are left on the shelf In short, manageable as not in your best. Manage ke? How cruel life is!
