Default Far out of date Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix



Advertise Here

"Best by Mar 2010" and a code is printed on the back of the bag.

We're about halfway through the bag at this point, had it open about a month.

It is perfectly fine, and the pancakes still have rise to them.

I bought it at Sam's Club probably 7 years ago, it's one of the 10 lb bags of the mix.

It was never exposed to extreme temp swings while in storage.

I've made pancakes, biscuits, and cinnamon coffee cake with it so far. Everything has been yummy with zero problems.

Just wanted to share my experience, since I have seen the "she DIED from eating old pancake mix!" stories.

We are putting another few bags of this stuff in the pantry; very pleased that such a reasonably priced item has performed so well.

Krusteaz is made from :

Enriched bleached flour (wheat flour, niacin, reduced iron, thiamin mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid, may contain malted barley flour), sugar, dextrose, leavening (sodium bicarbonate, sodium aluminum phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), soy flour, canola or soybean oil, salt, buttermilk, food starch-modified, sodium stearoyl lactylate.

CONTAINS: Wheat, soy and milk.

I'm surprised that the pancakes still rose for a product so out of date.

Like Sailor Boy pilot bread, Krusteaz is a staple here in Aalska.
Thanks for posting.

FWIW - people have died from eating old pancake mix. The mold in the mix was the agent of their demise...

There was an incident regarding outdated pancake mix in 2006.
Snopes lists this as being “True.” http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/pancake.asp

There is also the confirmed story of the 19 year old who ate old pancake mix and died. The case of his death was determined to be anaphylaxis due to an allergic reaction to molds.

Two pathologist in Charleston, South Carolina, reported on his death. The mix was analyzed; and they discovered four rather nasty molds: Penicillium, Fusarium, Mucor, and Aspergillus. The young man had not been reported as being allergic to eggs (an ingredient in pancake mix); and they stated there was no doubt as to which allergy killed him. “It had been mold and nothing but.”

You can read the complete story at :
http://ecohealthwellness.com/weight-...ixes-who-knew/

Rare - yes. A key factor would be to keep the mix (or any flour based product) in a dry location, hopefully in a sealed container. I've eaten 'outdated' Krusteaz product, but it was 'stored' in a cabin in rural Alaska - in the cold - and in a sealed, watertight container.

I mention this only because death can be such a bummer for most folks....

LOL
It is. Most folks realize they have a health problem only when they fall over dead...

While long term food storage isn't rocket mechanics, some care must be taken, least you join the ranks of the living impaired......

Krusteaz and the 'other' well known mix, Bisquick (Enriched Flour Bleached (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and/or Cottonseed Oil, Leavening (Baking Soda, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Dextrose, Salt.)

both have oils that can go bad.

Make your own for less:
http://www.homeinthefingerlakes.com/...-diy-bisquick/

http://www.kitchennostalgia.com/cann...ix_recipe.html

One cup of Bisquick can be substituted by a mixture of one cup of flour, 1Ĺ teaspoons of baking powder, Ĺ teaspoon of salt, and 2 1/2 tablespoons of oil or melted butter (or by cutting in 2 1/2 tbsp Crisco or lard).


The original Bisquick was just lard, flour, baking powder and salt.

General Mills isn't deaf - Bisquick HeartSmart is formulated with Canola oil resulting in less saturated fat and 0g trans fat.

Bisquick also comes in a gluten-free variety, which uses rice flour instead of regular flour.

I wouldn't eat it unless I was desperate - and I eat most anything. In normal times, just toss it and buy another one. It's painful (I toss MRE's every few years) but it's part of prepping and better than the sick or death thing.

We cycle out most stored food items about every 5 years, except food staples that will store in the 20 + year range. Have cooked/eaten far more than my fair share of 5+ year old pancake mix. Caveat, was stored in Mylar bags, in sealed metal mini-drums, dry clean conditions without radical temperature fluctuations.

Not much beats a breakfast of eggs, thick bacon, pancakes & jam, all of which excepting the pancake mix you raised/harvested yourself.

i laid back a few of the heavy sealed Krusteaz bags, i just add a little baking powder to the mix. the now the box that gets left open on a shelf and exposed to the damp etc. I don't think so.

well I have a thing for real waffles, since you can't buy real waffle mix with egg and malt in a regular grocery store, I had to buy a huge case of the REAL stuff from a restaurant supply house. 5-10 lbs bags. Almost through the last of it. bought it in 2003, and the current waffles are just as good as the first...so it definitely lasts as long as you keep it stored properly.

I had Krustaez pancakes with bacon this morning. This mix also works well in my waffle maker.

Part of the mold is death thing was proper storage. Another is some people are just sensitive to mold. My nice developed this and has gone to the er after eating older bread but with no visible mold. She has to be very careful now about eating anything that is older. Not everyone dies or even has a reaction but some will.

I quit buying pancake mix and have been making my own pancake mix when I make pancakes now. It takes a little longer to mix up the mix but it is good practice if SHTF every occurs. I keep baking soda and cream of tartar on hand to be able to make the baking powder for the mix.

Absolutely correct. Some of the molds noted can have devastating effects especially on those with weakened immune systems. Store in cool, dry environment and using common sense, don't eat if moldy or has musty smell.
