Foods that never expire: don’t throw them away, but learn to recognize them, against waste!

Not everyone knows that some foods NEVER expire.

Every time we buy a product or take it from the fridge and pantry, we maniacally check the MSL, the acronym that implies “minimum shelf life.” That figure indicates the exact time within which organoleptic characteristics are guaranteed to be intact.

But there are some exceptions: everything that is not subject to quick perishability bears the inscription, “best before,” complete with an indication of month and year.

These are foods that inherently and naturally possess antibacterial, antibiotic, antifungal properties, one out of all?

Rice:

when placed in a protected atmosphere, deprived of oxygen and stored below 10 degrees, never spoils!

canned tuna:

beloved by young and old alike, to be packaged properly is sterilized in an autoclave. This process makes it a safe and undamaged food for years and years, well beyond the date on the package.
