Is It OK To Eat Yogurt
After The Expiration Date?
Food - Drink
There are some who can plow through a container of yogurt in no time, while others often end up rediscovering a half-eaten carton hiding behind take-out containers and bottles of mustard only after it's expired. However, is trashing expired yogurt the only option?
Just because your yogurt is past its prime doesn't necessarily mean it's destined for the trash. According to Eat By Date, as long as it's within one to two weeks of the expiration date, yogurt is still safe to consume.
This doesn't mean you should eschew common sense and dig into a carton that's a bit more… aged. If you see specks of mold or notice any off-yellow discoloration — or if it just plain smells bad — it's time to grab yourself a new carton, which you will hopefully finish this time.
