Still Tasty

Founded in 2009 by food journalist Janice Revell and her mother, Regina (Jeanie) Revell, a retired food safety expert, the mission of StillTasty is "to help consumers save money, eat better and help the environment." To create its content, StillTasty draws on food safety research conducted by government agencies, including the United States Department of Agriculture, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. StillTasty also contacts food and beverage manufacturers directly to obtain specific information about their products. The main Keep It or Toss It? section of the StillTasty website can be searched by food name, and also browsed by categories such as Nuts, Grains & Pasta, and Vegetables. For example, under Grains & Pasta a user can quickly determine that the shelf life of dry farfalle pasta is about three years, even if the package has been opened. StillTasty also points out the difference between safety and good quality (i.e. frozen farfalle will taste best if it's frozen in a sauce and eaten within 1-2 months, but will still be safe to eat for much longer than that). Users with a particular query in mind may want to begin in the Your Questions Answered section, which covers food safety FAQs. The site also features Shelf Talk, a section dedicated to helping readers with other food preparation and transportation questions.
