Does anyone else notice that once opened, they tend to go bad really fast?<br>
I even seal them in zip loc bags and put them in the meat keeper of the fridge..<br><br>
WTF am I doing wrong here? I just dont eat enough to go through a whole pack of any of these.

I'm assuming you are talking about faux lunch meat? I don't eat it, but maybe you could separate it into single servings and freeze them. If it's thinly sliced and what-not, it wouldn't take that long to thaw.

Yes, are you talking about something like Tofurkey slices? I haven't noticed it going bad that quickly, but then I usually finish a package within a week's time. After that I would probably discard it anyway.

I just got some tofurky slices, it took me months to get to the store to get some, I don't want them to go bad! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> do fake cheese slices go bad quickly, too? I have tofutti, theyre individually wrapped slices but this still worries me if the faux meat goes bad even in a ziploc bag

Once opened, I store Tofurky in the meat drawer, in a tupperware container and it lasts for 5 days or so. Others last about the same for me. Could it be the temp of your frige?

That's how I store it also. I typically plan meals around faux meat when I buy it so it's gone in about three or four days anyway.

We like Tofurky and Lightlife Smart Deli Baked Ham. Both last for a week or two, no problem. I keep them in my deli drawer in the fridge. If your store doesn't sell to a lot of vegetarians, perhaps you are getting older products. Check the dates, and if you consistently have a problem, I'd email the company and/or store and try to get a refund. BTW - Lightlife has coupons online.<br><br>
My homemade seitan pastrami doesn't last very long. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

"Vegan Diner" by Julia Hasson. It's a spiced seitan recipe. Makes divine Reubens. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">
