Of course, canned fruit lasts for a shorter period of time if they are not stored properly. But remember, canned fruit, unlike a lot of other fruits, usually has a best by date and not a use by date or an expiration date. Because of this distinction, you may safely use canned fruit to compliment your favorite meals even after the best by date has lapsed.
How to tell if Canned Fruit is bad, rotten or spoiled?
Practicing proper hygiene and food safety techniques will help prevent food born illness. Canned fruit should be good for years, but if the lid of the can seems to be rounded across the top instead of flat (which sometimes happens after cans have been dropped and dented) - then the fruit may be bad and the can should be tossed.
There are, of course, certain health risks associated with spoiled food, so always remember to practice food safety and enjoy you food before their shelf life has expired!
How to store Canned Fruit to extend its shelf life?
You can help keep canned fruit fresh longer by storing it on a shelf where the temperature is cool, always under 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and away from sunlight.
Once opened, any leftovers should be put into an airtight container and placed in the fridge. Never place open cans containing food into the fridge. Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
