On the side of your egg carton, right by (or below) the “Sell By” date, you’ll
see a three-digit code. No, it’s not an arbitrary serial number; it’s the
Julian date, your fail-safe guide to fresh eggs.
1. A street in Paris
3. - b
5. The Andes
6. Slue-foot Sue
7. a Gorgon
8. - a
Ranging from 001 to 365, the Julian date represents the day the eggs were
packaged. Each code corresponds to a day in the year, so 001 would be
January 1 and 365 would represent December 31. Once the eggs are packaged,
they’ll keep in your fridge for four to five weeks.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, eggs can be sold
for up to 30 days after they were packaged. So even if they’re in stock and
not expired, they might be weeks old.
It’s obvious newly packaged eggs taste better, but an egg’s quality can
significantly deteriorate over time. As an egg ages, it loses moisture and
carbon dioxide, making the whites thinner and the yolk more susceptible to
breaking. And when you eat old, expired eggs, your risk of getting a
food-borne disease from them increases.
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
