I'm not sure how to judge the fridge life of this stuff, does this salty stuff last awhile?

    I'm voting to re-open this because Miso paste is different from other foods covered in the listed duplicate. It therefore warrants a separate answer.

  • @GdD - The website StillTasty is the first link in the linked duplicate that is recommended to check for specific foods, and it has an entry for miso. Your comment does bring up a larger question about that duplicate answer's formatting though -- perhaps the link to that database should be placed near the beginning of the question, so people who are re-routed there can immediately search for their food.

Miso paste lasts literal years in the refrigerator, although past a year it starts to lose flavor. It can also dry out if it isn't sealed well, which isn't a problem as you rehydrate it before drinking anyway - it just takes a bit longer to dissolve.

    Drinking Miso Paste? Whatever floats your boat I suppose. Commented Jan 10, 2020 at 19:38
  • Miso soup is diluted miso paste. Very tasty @SomethingSomething.
