Consumption Of Formula Milk Whose Expiration Period Is Still 4 Months?
Ass … I want to ask, I’m Bli nutrilon milk for children 3-6 years, it turns out that it is nearing 4 months exp. It should still be consumed or not. Thank you
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Kadalursa date is the date printed on the packaging of food or drinks that are made to avoid consumers from consuming food or drinks that are no longer good for digestion. But in English, the expiration date is separated again into several terms. Among the ones we often encounter are expiry / expiration dates and best before.
Expiration date that is often written also with ED or EXP is the last date that food or drink can be consumed. If written on April 21, 2019, then after that date, the food or drink is no longer safe for the body.
Best before is a date that is only a suggestion, where after that date, there will be a decrease in the quality of taste, form or nutrition present in the food or drink, but still safe for the body to consume. For example, if it is written April 21, 2019, it can actually be eaten past that date, but it is no longer optimal, or is not in its best preparation, regardless of whether it is assessed in terms of color, taste, shape and or nutrition.
There are several other terms such as use by, open dating, sell by, and display until, but this is not commonly found in Indonesia. But basically, all of these dates indicate what will happen if that date is skipped. So in your case, if there is still a gap of 4 months, then it should still be safe if it has been stored properly (as is usually the case with the words "keep away from direct sunlight", "store at 4 degrees Celsius" and such ). Even if it's good storage, it can be said that a few days' difference is still safe for consumption. So, hopefully answering your question.
