    Default Canned Food Equivalents

    Canned Food

    Canned food has a shelf life of at least two years from the date of processing and can retain its safety and nutritional value well beyond two years with some variation in quality, such as a change of color and texture. For more information and facts about canned foods, visit mealtime.org.
