12 Less-Known Signs Your Food Has Gone BAD
#10. Mushrooms look darker
If you ever want to pick the best, freshest mushrooms from the grocery store, make sure to pick the lightest ones.
In other terms, the darker a mushroom gets, the older it is. Of course, this depends on the variety since there are some types of brown mushrooms as well – but even so, choose the lightest shade of brown for your meals.
Even though darker mushrooms haven’t gone bad yet, they still won’t taste as good as their lighter alternatives.
Furthermore, if a mushroom starts feeling slimy on the surface, it also means it’s time to throw it away since this is one of the first signs of mold.
