I’m interested in hearing opinions on the shelve life of jerky and other dried treats.
Should they be refrigerated after opening if they are just dried with no salt/preservatives?
How long are they safe in an unopened package?
I just leave them in the freezer and take them out as I want them. I live in the south and they would definitely go bad down here. I have my own dehydrator and make my own jerky treats out of all different kinds of meat.
Lucky I’m not a dog too, because I make some for myself just the way I like it, with steak sauce.
Ok, as for dried treats, you should keep them in a ziplock or air tight bag. They last for around 4 years before they are opened (most don’t put a best before date), and usually stay good for a while depending on storage condition and ingredients (pure veggies pieces tend to last longer than meat products). I recommend keeping them in a dry place, or if you feel safer freezing always preserves well! But overall, as long as they are air tight and stored properly they are a long lasting treat!
