I'll be interested to hear views on keeping dry goods like pasta, rice, flour etc. past the manufacturers use by date.
At work its down the line of course. Environmental health make the rules and we stick by them.
At home i certainly do not. I have it on good authority that, so long as, say pasta, is kept sealed and dry it can last forever.
Theres always an element of doubt in my mind, so if you know better, do share
