How long should food be kept before it loses nutritional value...
And should be tossed. Starting to realize the amount of food I have will last a lifetime . I've got pellets/flakes/wafers that I've had for maybe 6-9 months . Is it time to replace?
I read somewhere that once food is opened, it loses nutritional value rapidly over a 3-month period and any opened food should be tossed after 3 months. Unfortunately, I can't remember where I read that!
I keep unopened food in the fridge or freezer for long periods of time and don't worry too much about the age until I open it. I have stopped buying the huge tins of flakes though!
