It's fine. Cream of tartar is tartaric acid. It can't go bad. IT CANNOT GO BAD.

It is only one year past "date" and it is still sealed. I would use it. And as my aunt told me, they did notput dates on things, you went by how they smelled if they were bad.

It's idiotic that there is a date on it. It's tartaric acid, commonly left over after wine making. IT CANNOT GO BAD. There is nothing in it to go bad. It's not perishable. It's a chemical. IT CANNOT GO BAD.
