    If it's expired about 3-5 days ago, i tasted it but it didn't change much(the taste). Is it still good to our health ?

    I think expiration dates is within "extra safe" parameters just to ensure the food DEFINATLY cant get bad and end in a lawsuit because of health related problems. So expiration dates are probably within atleast 3-5 days on most products before they actually get bad.

    3 to 5 days is massively conservative. Normally, expiration dates are far more conservative than that. If the yoghurt still tastes as it should, it is almost 100% sure to be OK.

    Generally speaking, I ignore "use by" and "best before" dates on food. If it looks OK and smells OK then I will eat it.
    As for getting ill, I cannot remember when I last had anything as severe as indigestion (and I have an excellent memory).
    I suspect food tolerance is dependent on upbringing and as my family had to scrimp and save, eating cheese from which my mother had just cut off the green mould was quite normal, and wasting food was unacceptable.
    Regards,
    Mike.

    Yes. Expiration dates are very conservative. Even meat can be eaten a couple days after the expiration date if it looks OK and smells OK, though it is best to cook the meat thoroughly.
