According to a food agency, "best before" dates as on packaged products (such as bread, biscuits, and dairy products) are focused on food quality and does not concern food safety, i.e. A product may still be consumed after "best before" date but may not be at its best state. As a consumer, it is his/her duty to look for signs if the product is suitable for consumption after its "best before" date. For example, checking if the biscuits are stale or still crispy, visible bacteria on bread and so on.
Did this leave you wondering as to which products should be refrigerated and which shouldn't be to keep them fresh for long?
Food such as Potatoes, Onions, Bananas, and Bread should never be kept in a
fridge, instead, should be stored in a cool place in their original packaging
far away from direct sunlight. On the contrary, foods such as Tomatoes, Eggs,
Apples, and Oranges should be refrigerated, for sure, in their original packaging
so that they last longer.
