It's expired, a year old to date. Can I still use it?

It might be okay, but I am funny about expiration dates. I would not use it.

I've used expired things before....and would use it if it looked ok and smelled ok. If the can is not swollen or bulged at the top. Wouldn't serve it to anyone else, tho.

GINSOU,

That was an excellent reminder, thank you. Actually, I am cooking for my dogs but I do taste everything. The dogs are my 1st tasters of anything. I'm super low salt & sugar so it works out fine.

The date on most food products is not an expiration date, but a "best before" date. It is the date beyond which the manufacturer can not be sure it will still be in ideal condition. Consistency, color, taste may begin to change. It doesn't mean it is unsafe to use it.

True expiration dates are found on medications and supplements. These may lose efficacy beyond that date, and should not be used.
