How long will unopened commercial thai chili pastes last?

Bada Bing | May 31, 2010 02:32 PM

My pantry has about a dozen containers of curry pastes that I bought before moving to this current address in 2005. They are plastic tubs, jars, or little cans of Maesri and Mae Ploy Green Curry Paste, Panang Curry, Chili/Garlic Paste, etc.

Their "expiration" dates range from 2007-08. But do these things actually go bad in a health sense (I understand that they might well not be spanking fresh)? I've started back in on Thai ingredients recipes, so I'm just wondering...
