How To Tell If Milk Has Really Expired
Has Your Milk Really Expired or Are You Just Wasting Your Money?
Many people would just get rid of the milk after reading that it's expiry date has passed. Personally I think this is a waste of food and money.
My mother has never poured milk down the sink just because the bottle says so. It isn't told to expire on that day.This is just an estimate, for extra health and safety measures. These measures are there because people who live in the modern society have no idea about where their food comes from, or indeed what it should look, taste or smell like when it has gone off.
This is what I do. If I see that the expiry date of the milk has passed or I have some suspicions; I pour a little milk into a cup (1/4 cup) and put it in the microwave until it boils. Take it out and if the milk has curdled, it is expired, if it hasn't curdled (which is mostly the case), it's fine, you can drink it. Easy! Nothing will happen to you.

I hope this was helpful. Try it at home and see how much money you save on just milk alone. Feel free to leave me any comments
