I found an old can of peaches at the back of the cupboard. Is it OK?


Sometimes I buy extra canned food, especially when it is on special, and sometimes it takes a while to get through them. I found an old can of peaches at the back of the cupboard. Is it OK?

If the can is still in good condition — no rust, corrosion, dents, holes or swelling — it’s probably fine. Some canned foods can last for years, though planning to use them within 12 months will mean you’ll eat them at their best (and baby foods should be used within 12 months).

The older a can gets the more likely the contents will start to lose quality — flavour, texture, colour, aroma or nutritional value.
