How Long Do Other Foods Last?
The other category of foods includes many different
food groups that didn't quite fit into the main
categories. Foods such as Oils and Condiments,
Sauces, Sweets, Snacks, Baking Products and Spices
are all included as sub-categories in the Other food
The other food group is often thought of as the
"extras", not really essential to survive but often
thought of as essential to truly enjoy the entire
process of eating for pleasure and not just purpose.
It's generally considered OK to dip into this food
group, but not to try and survive on it unless it's
an emergency situation.
Also included in this "other" category are a few
items that are not even edible. Things like dry ice,
aspirin and even make-up are included here. Even
though they are not food or beverages, they too can
eventually expire and thus their shelf life
information is important to know and explore.
All of these products are very different and
therefore have varying shelf lives and also
preferred storage methods that will increase their
shelf life. Check out some of your favorite products
to be sure you are getting the most value and flavor
out of each and every one. Actually, you should
check them all for helpful tips and ideas. While
