How long do rolled oats last?

Postby Jadine Happynook on Mon Jan 26, 2009 9:49 pm

I have a Tupperware container of rolled oats. They aren't old. So I'm not worried. But I do wonder how long they do last? Since they are in my Tupperware I don't have the package. So is there an expiry date on rolled oats? And do they last longer in Tupperware?

Thanks KIV

I would think if they are sealed good they would last quite a while. Oats, wheat etc.. are good food storage items, so I'm *assuming* they will be good for a while, if kept sealed. LOL But you know what happens when one assumes.... LOL

They last quite some time if in TW. However they do go stale- easiest way to tell is to smell and taste! It is very easy to taste if they are off - it's not disgusting but it tastes stale.

I go through it fairly fast now, but buy it in massive quantities and it seems to last forever in my Tupperware!

My mum has always said no more than a few months opened. I buy bulk too and try to get as much of the air out as I can when I seal it up. The bottom bit always seems to end up in cookies and the sugar seems to off set whatever may be a bit out dated.

I love the tall stackable tupperware containers for bulk staples!
