What is a best before date?
A "best-before" date, also known as a durable life date, tells you when the durable life period of a prepackaged food will end.
Durable life means the anticipated amount of time that an unopened food product, when the stored under appropriate conditions, will retain its freshness, taste, nutritional value, or any other qualities claimed by the manufacturer.
The best-before date indicates to consumers that if the product has been properly handled (stored under conditions appropriate to that product), the unopened product should be of high quality until the specific date shown.
Best-before dates do not guarantee product safety. However, they do provide you information regarding freshness and potential shelf-life of the unopened foods you are purchasing.
It is vital to note and understand that a best-before date is not the same as an expiration date.
Selling foods that are passed the best-before dates.
By law, it is not illegal to sell a product if its best-before date has passed. However, when this date has passed, the food may lose some of its freshness and flavor, or its texture may have changed. Some if its nutritional value, such as vitamin C content, may also be lost.
What are packaging dates?
"Packaged on" dates are similar to "the best-before" date but are used on retail-packed foods with a durable life date of 90 days or less, and must be accompanied by durable life information either on the label or on a poster next to the food. The durable life information can be expressed several ways, for example, the number of days a product will retain its freshness, or a best-before date. Together, the "packaged on" date and durable life information tell consumers about the food anticipated amount of time that an unopened food product will retain its quality and freshness.
What is an expiration date?
An expiration date is not the same as a best-before date. Expiration dates are required only on certain foods that have strict compositional and nutritional specifications which might not be met after the expiration date.
Expiration dates must be used on the following products:
*formulated liquid diets (nutritionally complete diets for people using oral or tube feeding methods)
*foods represented for use in a very low-energy diet (foods only sold by a pharmacist and only with a written order from a physician)
*meal replacements (formulated food that, by itself, can replace one or more daily meals)
*nutritional supplements (food sold or represented as a supplement to a diet that may be inadequate in energy and essential nutrients)
*human milk substitutes (infant formula)
After the expiration date, the food may not have the same nutrient content declared as on the label.
Food should not be purchased, sold or eaten if the expiration date has passed. It should be discarded.
