Just How Long Can Dried Pasta Be Stored?
Well, Michele Foley at Chowhound.com wrote a web article addressing that very question in 2008. Quoting from that site, she cites Daniel Carlin (Director of Quality Assurance) from the Ronzoni Macaroni Company. She writes, “Carlin says that most Ronzoni pastas are given a use-by date of two years after manufacture, though he doesn’t hesitate to eat three-year-old dried pasta. “Because dried pasta has little to no fat or moisture content, it resists spoiling easily, and has a shelf life that is pretty remarkable.” ”
Kathleen Thomas, communications manager for the Food Marketing Institute, says that dried pasta can be kept for about two years if it’s stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. Keeping the pasta away from moisture, Ms.Thomas says, is most important as any dried good exposed to water becomes a breeding ground for harmful bacteria.
