Does honey have an expiration date?
Honey stored in sealed containers can remain stable for decades and even centuries! However, honey is susceptible to physical and chemical changes during storage; it tends to darken and loose its aroma and flavor, or crystallize. These are temperature-dependent processes, making the shelf life of honey difficult to define. For practical purposes, a shelf life of two years is often stated. Properly processed, packaged and stored honey can retain its quality for much longer, even centuries! Just ask the Egyptians, see the link to an article regarding honey found in the pyramids below.
