Most boxed beef broth will last for about six months past the expiration date, but it’s best to check with the manufacturer to see what they recommend.
It’s also important to know that the expiration dates on most boxed beef broth are not necessarily accurate. Manufacturers tend to overstate the shelf life of their products in order to protect themselves from lawsuits. This can lead to wasted food and money.
How long is boxed beef broth good after expiration?
The answer depends on several factors, including how well you store it and how long it has been on your shelf. You can find out exactly how long boxed beef broth lasts by checking its “sell-by” or “use-by” date. That information is usually printed on the label near the top of the package, although sometimes it’s located elsewhere on the box or canister.
In addition to storing boxed beef broth properly (i.e., in a cool dry place), there are other ways you can extend its shelf life:
Don’t buy more than you need at one time; store any excess in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to a week before using it again if necessary (check with your local grocer if there are any questions about whether this will affect their warranty).
