Phyllo Pastry. I have a packet of phyllo pastry

which I want to use, but has a "Use By date of 24 June. Does anyone know it it will still be OK, or should I get rid of it. Usually if items say "Best before" I will use them up to a week later, but what about "Use By"

Forgot to mention, the packet is unopened.

open it. You'll be fine.

I would not use anything after the 'Use By' date - just the thought that it may be off puts me off. Shame to go to a lot of work and the dish not taste good.

I would use things past their use by date but in the case of phyllo/filo pastry, which usually goes mouldy once it passes its use by date, I'd be more cautious. A visual and sniff check should tell you if it can be used. If you do decide to use it, cook it immediately. Don't pre-prepare and leave in the fridge till meal time before cooking.

OK thanks, I might get rid of it just in case.

It will be fine. If it gone off there will be mould peckles. If it is unopenend it will be fine you will not get sick from it
