EXPIRY/BEST BEFORE 06/2019
The Truth about Fish Science Best Before & Expiry dates...
The Expiry Dates are a legal requirement in the UK & EU and indicate the date when the manufacturer guarantees that the products will meet the Analysis that is printed on the label - if the products have been kept as recommended (sealed). After that expiry/best before date the foods will normally be ok, but cannot be guaranteed to be so - especially if the seal is broken or damaged.
It is very difficult to give a rate of deterioration as it is impacted by the temperature the foods are stored at, including occasional exposure to high temperatures. In clear, packaging light can also have an impact.
As a very rough guide I would suggest that the food will still be in good condition 6 - 12 months after the best before date or Expiry date, with only a 20 - 25% reduction in vitamin levels.
