Note to shelf

Five tips for better pantry storage, according to registered dietitian Tracey Frimpong


● If you transfer dry goods to another container, write the expiration date on with marker or note the sell-by date—dry goods lasts for a few months after that date.

● Spices can last for two to three years, but there’s a catch: The fresher they are, the more flavourful they are.

● Most pantry items can be stored in a dry and cool space to keep them fresher longer. Nuts should go in the freezer so they stay crunchy.

● Because whole-grain products have wheat germ— which is high in oil and goes rancid quickly—they expire faster than white grains.

● Save the clear containers and the prime shelf real estate for the healthy goods, and hide the junk food.
