Infographic: How Long Certain Foods Really Last In The Fridge


Originally posted 2012-03-05 11:00:24.

Spotted this infographic from HellaWella on the FoodRepublic website, and I think a few things are important to note, here:

  1. The difference in time between the refrigerated time and the frozen time;
  2. The lack of fruits or vegetables on here, and
  3. The fact that some of these are things you can easily stock up on during a sale, store in a freezer and hold onto for the future.

Looking at this infographic just makes me want to buy an additional freezer. Those of you who cowpool or jar/can/preserve fruits and veggies might want to consider doing the same.

    According to this chart I should have expired a long time ago. I go well beyond these time limits.

    This is a very helpful graphic. I do have ONE burning question that often does prevent me from buying/eating my fruits and veggies – I feel like they don’t last very long. Generally how long can they keep in the fridge? I mean, I know not to eat it if it’s changing colors and growing fuzz, but I am scared to death of eating rotten food (that goes for meats, dairy, whatever….)
