Questions specifically about the expected shelf life of a food item.

If your question concerns the precise amount of time a food will last in storage, use the tag in addition or instead of the tag.

Please look to see if there is already an answer to your question on a general reference site such as StillTasty.com before asking it here. We prefer to see questions in this tag that deal with unusual ingredients/preparations, unusual storage scenarios, or the "science" behind a particular shelf-life estimate (i.e. why does cream last so much longer than milk?).
