Actual Shelf Life of Tortillas?

zackly | May 12, 201905:52 AM     3

I frequently buy commercially prepared tortillas (corn and flour), use a few, then store the remaining in the refrigerator. Yesterday, I used flour tortillas with an expiration date of 2/22/19 with no apparent, to me. loss of quality. When I search "shelf life of tortillas" the results state a much shorter time. Due to potential liability these sites tend to "stay on the safe side" just like poultry internal temperature recommendations are generally 10-15 degrees too high. In the "real world" how long do tortillas last in the refrigerator? The picture is for a brand I like, Guerrero. They have many ingredients including additives to preserve freshness.
