    1. Like any food product it should be stored in a sealed container, in the refrigerator for no more than a week. Louise x

  1. Does this work for spaghetti you plan on eating? (I normally rinse the spaghetti under hot water to re-heat it.

  2. Ladies,

    The dyed spaghetti is safe to eat; however, be aware that the colored dye may (I’m trying to be delicate) reappear after digestion… Example: many, many years ago, my father in-law decided to make mint flavored milk shakes that he added green dye to. The youngest daughter freaked out the next morning after she ‘freshened-up’! LOL
