Of course, all foods last for a shorter period of time if they are not stored properly. Purchased quiche usually has a best before date which is a date set by the manufacturer to guarantee best product quality and not an expiration date or an expression of safety.
How to tell if Quiche is bad, rotten or spoiled?
Practicing proper hygiene and food safety techniques will help prevent foodborne illness.
Sight is usually the most reliable way to tell if your product is going bad.
When quiche is going bad, the egg will begin to develop a firmer (or harder) texture, begin to turn a darker yellow color and begin separating and/or leaking. It won't taste good at this point. Also, the crust will begin to absorb moisture from the filling and become soggy. By the time your sense of smell is engaged and you smell rotten eggs, it is way too late for your quiche and it must be tossed.
There are, of course, certain health risks associated with spoiled foods so always remember to practice food safety and enjoy your foods before their shelf life has expired!
How to store Quiche to extend its shelf life?
Wrap your quiche tightly in plastic wrap or another airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
For a long term option, quiche can be frozen.
Some benefits of proper food storage include eating healthier, cutting food costs and helping the environment by avoiding waste.
How long is Quiche good for when prepared in a dish?
