Does hummus go bad?

Asked by Fieryspoon (1058points) September 25th, 2008

I’m guessing yes.

Also, how long does it take, if yes?

it can grow mold. ive found old hummus in the back of my fridge from a few months before, and it was green and brown. it could take less than that though. either way, the pita that goes along with it would go bad.

Of course it does. In fact, garbanzo beans go bad pretty fast and get really sour.
A better question might be “can sour cream go sour?”

was what ever good? hummus or sour cream?

hummus can go bad. i usually try to eat homemade hummus within a week. it’s not exact, but it’s a rule of thumb

Rule of thumb:

If it aint honey, it goes bad.

It is a perfect growing medium. I have tried it myself (not on purpose). Anything over a week is definitely iffy.

I’d say a week and sometimes less if it’s homemade. Eat up!

We keep Hummus in closed containers in our fridge for months and it’s fine…

@ezra—that is before you open them though, right????

@ezraglennn If that is opened hummus and you invite me over, remind me to stick to the feta cheese and kalamata olives.

…maybe months was an exageration? weeks… and yeah, open. Im worried you all think im gross now.

@eg Nah, I was pretty much kidding.
