-Think twice before reaching for individually packaged foods that were sliced or prepared in the deli. It’s highly probable that these foods are expired or just about to go bad.
-When choosing a salad, remember that those with meat or fish expire way faster than vegetable ones. Salads with oil dressings are safer than ones dressed with mayonnaise.
-Any visible damage can be a sign of improper storage, transporting in the wrong conditions, and even expiration.
-Ask the person working the meat counter to take a piece that you like out of the display so that you can look at it yourself. You’ll be shocked by how different it can look under normal lighting.
-Fruits and vegetables that were grown naturally in soil normally have a duller color, spots, and other imperfections on the peel. Truly natural cheese is always white or pale yellow.
-Don’t be lazy! Reach for the back of the shelf in order to buy fresher and better quality foods.
-Funny names are meant to disguise and sell a cheap, low-quality equivalent of a real product.
-For fresh produce like fruits and vegetables, check the Price Look Up (or PLU) sticker. It should have a 5-digit code that starts with the number 9, like 94401.
-It’s better to buy locally-sourced goods because long transportation and possible violations of carriage conditions can influence their taste and quality.
-Use your chance to ask a store worker about the goods you’re looking for, like where you can find them, how fresh they are, and when the next batch will arrive.
