When it comes to food and eating, you probably hear a lot of truth and myths about cooking from your parents, friends, relatives and teachers. This is partly because they have grown up when there was different food information and because many food companies through their advertisements wanted you to believe certain things their way in order to sell their products. But time has changed and myths are easily busted. We bring you the biggest myths we heard in the history of kitchen. It’s time to stop believing and know the fact behind them.

Nothing will happen if you eat expired food

Myth: Expiry dates actually indicate that the product loses its quality and nutritional value. Rare exceptions from that rule are only non-perishable, shelf-stable foods and only if they were preserved accordingly.

It’s not safe to eat food from dented cans

Myth: If the dent is not a sharp crease, the seal is not broken and dent is not on the top or bottom of the can, it’s not dangerous. What you should avoid are swollen or rusted cans.

Alcohol completely burns off during cooking
