"Is the date stamped on my egg carton a "best before" or an "expiry" date? Can I still use eggs for baking past a best before date??"
Great question, many people wonder that same thing.
The Best Before date (28 to 42 days from the packaging date) on the carton indicates the length of time the eggs will maintain their Grade A quality. If kept refrigerated, they can be consumed up to one to two weeks after that date. However, they should be used in a thoroughly cooked dish (baked, hard-cooked or scrambled) rather than soft-poached or fried.
Though, if you are still concerned about the safety of the egg past its “Best Before” date, we always suggest airing on the side of caution and not consuming it. Better safe than sorry!=>
