I just found a link to a nifty site where you can look up the shelf life of of the food in your stockpile, as well as just about anything you can think of: StillTasty.com

I ran through the search for a handful of items, coolio! I haven’t trusted the shelf life dates on food packaging since reading the lack of FDA regulations regarding them. (See my previous article about product dating.) The fact that there is an expiration date on WATER is a pretty strong indication that the shelf life marked on most food packaging is more about profit than anything else.

(I found the Still Tasty site in the resource list in Tim Ferris’ latest book The 4-Hour Body.)

    […] Valerie over at Dolly Domestic just wrote about an awesome website she found while reading the book The 4-Hour Body (which I saw a news segment about and thought it was interesting).  The website is Still Tasty.  It helps you learn the true meaning of the expiration dates on the food in your stockpile and tells you how long foods are truly good and safe to eat.  Thanks, Valerie for the link, and this is a GREAT resource!
