  • The term staple foods is reserved for foods that have a long shelf life. Many food companies

  • are adamant about making foods that can last on shelves for a longer time because in the

  • long run it’s better for them. Better for storage, better for transport, longer shelf

  • life. How long can that shelf life actually be? Well let’s take a look at 10 foods that

  • never expire.

  • Sugar

  • Of course sugar never expires - the most evil food in the world will hang in there haunting

  • you from your cupboards for the rest of your life. Why doesn’t sugar expire? Well there’s

  • a super science-y explanation behind that one. It has everything to do with microorganisms

  • and how long they can last on their own. Sugar soaks up what little bit of moisture there

  • is contained in microorganisms, causing them to die, rather than making the sugar rot.

  • (However, if you keep sugar in a very humid or wet environment, this handy tactic goes

  • out the window, and then the sugar CAN go bad.) But with proper storage, this could

  • be why sugar is in everything - its just always around and readily available. Please know

  • that once you mix sugar into anything it can now expire but on it’s own it will last

  • a lifetime. Don’t mix this fact up with brown sugar, the way that brown sugar has

  • to be processed leaves it open for dryness and the opportunity to clump together. We

  • all know clumped together is the most annoying thing ever. This never happens with white

  • sugar and that is leaving us suspicious. We will admit that it’s pretty handy that sugar

  • never expires, at least we know something will always be there for us. Albeit a fattening

  • food item but, beggars can’t be choosers.

  • Instant Coffee

  • The smell of Instant Coffee is quite amazing. There are not many things that can instantly

  • perk you up after just one smell. Fresh ground coffee is always the best but instant coffee

  • is a good buffer when that isn’t available. Fresh ground coffee never keeps its freshness

  • after a while it doesn’t taste the same and it’s not as strong. According to Canitgobad.com,

  • coffee doesn’t expire in a typical way. “In most cases coffee doesn’t go bad in

  • a way that it’s spoiled and you can get sick after drinking a cup brewed with it.

  • It will, however, lose its taste over time and after a certain period of time the coffee

  • will start to taste stale or tasteless.”. When it comes to instant coffee, it can stick

  • around for a pretty long time. In some cases when it’s stored while still at its best,

  • it can last indefinitely. That being said, if you are worried that your coffee has gone

  • bad something to look out for are mold in the container it is sealed in. But, it takes

  • a lot for coffee to grow mold.

  • Powdered Milk

  • So let’s be clear - like everything else on this list powdered milk can go bad if not

  • stored properly. Powdered milk, also known as dried milk, is chalked full of preservatives

  • to keep it useable for years upon years. Manufacturers recommend that you use powdered milk within

  • 18 months. But the USDA has confirmed that powdered milk can be stored indefinitely.

  • Some survival stores sell nonfat dry powdered milk labeled with a 25-year shelf life. Apparently,

  • the shelf life depends on the type of powdered milk; nonfat, whole, or buttermilk. Like everything

  • else, the storage life of this product depends on how it’s stored, what type of milk it

  • is and what it’ s stored in. Some people recommend using mason jars for a tight seal

  • that cannot break unless broken. Another way powdered milk can last even longer is by freezing

  • it. Usually things that are frozen are automatically in preservation mode and powdered milk is

  • no different. If you choose not to freeze it or preserve it correctly, start looking

  • out for signs of it going bad. Yellow discoloration, a bad odor, if it looks as though it’s clumpy

  • - this could all mean that moisture got in there somehow. It’s best to throw it out

  • at that point. You don’t want to risk a hurt stomach and anything that goes along

  • with drinking spoiled powdered milk.

  • Soy Sauce

  • How many people have a bottle of soy sauce in their cupboards that they refuse to toss

  • out? You know the one. Where the lid is a mess and the contents of the bottle have spilled

  • out onto the side of the lid leaving that disgusting ring of now sticky soy sauce on

  • the edges. The bottle itself looks old yet, the contents of the bottle are dang near perfect,

  • how is this possible? What kind of sorcery is this? The crazy part is, it tastes the

  • same as the day we got it. After some research, a lightbulb went off and it turns out that

  • soy sauce is yet another one of those staple items that will not expire. Like many seasonings

  • and sauces, soy has acid-hydrolyzed vegetable protein. This veggie protein also contributes

  • to long-lasting shelf life. Traditional soy sauce only has 4 ingredients; water, salt,

  • soybeans and wheat and normally only enough is made for whatever it is being used for.

  • Our question is; if it is only 4 ingredients why aren’t we all making it fresh instead

  • of ingesting the one with a lot of chemicals to expand its shelf life?

  • Popcorn Kernels

  • Popcorn kernels are one of those foods that can just sit on a shelf and wait patiently

  • for someone to feel like cooking them up. This is not only amazing it’s comforting.

  • Seeing as popcorn is actually a pretty healthy snack before being loaded up with butter and

  • all sorts of random stuff for flavor. It is 100% whole grain and you can eat like 6 cups

  • worth of it in one sitting. This makes me wonder if there is something called the popcorn

  • diet. Maybe we should be the ones to create it. Unpopped and properly stored kernels will

  • last indefinitely. Microwave popcorn coated in all that coagulated melted butter will

  • last a good 6-8 months. And popped popcorn will last a solid 3 weeks - if you can handle

  • how stale it gets. All of this sounds like a pretty good deal to us. Think about it,

  • if you popped some popcorn somewhere that thing will last 3 weeks on your person if

  • stored well. That being said, here are some signs that could indicate that your microwave

  • popcorn has gone bad. If when you remove the cellophane wrapping there is a weird smell,

  • that means the butter and oils coating the kernels have gone bad. If you pop kernels

  • and A LOT of them don’t pop, it is not at it’s best.

  • Red Wine

  • Yes, that’s right your beloved red wine can last for hundreds of years. As long as

  • it is of good quality and it’s stored correctly. What is a good quality wine? Look for information

  • about where the wine was made or how long the fruits aged for, and when you get as far

  • as opening the bottle, smell it. If you can smell particular flavors and you can taste

  • hints of those flavors you are good to go. But, of course, one of the best indicators

  • is the year the batch was made. If you look up the region it was made in and the weather

  • during that time, it’s usually a good indicator if this wine is quality. Even if you happen

  • to pick up a fairly cheap bottle or box of wine, that doesn’t mean it will necessarily

  • expire soon. Storing it in a cool and dark place is recommended. After opening it, remember

  • to seal it tightly - and even better, put it in the fridge! So, now that we have that

  • out of the way we should mention that some wines are actually made to go bad. How to

  • tell if it’s bad? It’s fairly simple. You need to examine its looks, smell and taste.

  • If it has changed its color, or it has developed off odor, it’s bad and you should throw

  • it out. If it doesn’t taste the same, or has a vinegar-y effect, toss it. Better to

  • be safe than sorry.

  • Canola Oil

  • At one time there was a huge controversy over canola oil - people were confused about how

  • bad it was for you. The oil is vegetable-based and from Canada. Yet, it’s hard to find

  • out exactly which vegetable is being used. This sounds like a product that would enjoy

  • a long shelf life. Don’t get it twisted though, not every oil has an indefinite shelf

  • life. But, now that canola oil has received a clean bill of health, many people are flocking

  • to it. Not only because of that healthy checkmark but because they can use it confidently 3

  • years down the road and then some. According to Eat This, Not That, “It can last up to

  • two years in a cool, dry place and for an indefinite amount of time if stored in the

  • fridge.” This apparently goes for the oils in spray cans as well. They are even more

  • preserved than the ones in the jug. Canola oil is found in so many things we eat on a

  • regular basis like meat. Once the teeny tiny seeds are pressed, the shells that are remaining

  • are mixed in with livestock feed. So even if you are actively trying to avoid this oil,

  • it may be harder than you thought to keep it out of your diet.

  • Spam

  • People just don’t believe that anything in a can be healthy. So let’s take a look

  • at why people believe Spam can go bad. We all know that once meat is processed, it needs

  • to be eaten in a certain amount of time. There is an assumption that because Spam is in a

  • can and looks like it has been minced to paste, that it is cooked. This is where we all get

  • it wrong. Spam has been preserved like a boss in that can. No, seriously, it sits in a salt

  • brine that keeps it as fresh as a salt brine can keep anything. So essentially it is ready

  • to eat from the can - no cooking or seasoning or anything else is really required. Unopened

  • cans of any kind of meat (chicken, fish, tuna etc) usually have a shelf life of 2-5 years

  • after the best before date. However, many people have admitted to eating their long

  • lost can of Spam well after that. According to survivalistboards.com Spam is fine to eat

  • after that 5-year mark, the only difference is the taste might be dull. Dull meat over

  • no meat? Guess were trying dull meat for the first time.

  • Dry Beans

  • Beans should be a staple in everyone’s diet - they are high in protein and filling. Most

  • people avoid beans because they don’t know how to cook them. Or, they think they take

  • too long to cook - and to be honest canned beans are way easier to deal with. Toss them

  • in a pot and stir for a few minutes. Then add them to just about anything. Dry beans

  • need to be boiled or soaked for a certain amount of time. Depending on the bean, it’s

  • best to start overnight. But the upside is they will last a very, very, very long time

  • in your cupboard until you have the time to cook them. This has everything to do with

  • the fact that they are dried. So, as long as you store them correctly and don’t allow

  • any moisture into their package than everything should be fine. If youre really not a fan

  • of dried beans, than by all means get yourself some canned beans - they too can last a pretty

  • long time in your cupboard. Canned beans can safely last for a year in your cupboard and

  • even after they are still edible but tread lightly, every once in a while you come across

  • a can after a year and well, let’s just say the smell that comes out of it after you

  • open it is not the greatest. If you don't finish an opened can of beans, think about

  • putting them in the freezer. You can get another year out of canned beans that have been frozen.

  • White Vinegar

  • White Vinegar isn’t something that many people think of as a staple - what do you

  • need white vinegar for? A lot actually. It can be used to pickle fruits and vegetables

  • and clean meat before cooking. And it’s actually pretty popular when you are making

  • your own sauces and marinades. Think about it, if vinegar is good for all these things

  • it makes sense that it has a long shelf life. According to Eat This, Not That, vinegar is

  • self-preserving. There’s even a vinegar institute that provides information and research

  • on the latest that is going on with this food. There are a number of health benefits that

  • also go along with white vinegar. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that brown or

  • malt vinegar is the same. They too are somewhat self-preserving but there are way more ingredients

  • that go into it. Hence the color and the more potent taste. The acidic nature of this product

  • also means that it does not require refrigeration.
