How long after the "sell by" or "use by" date is it advisable to eat applesauce?

Unopened apple sauce generally will stay fresh for 9-12 months prior to opening it. Once opened, applesauce must be refrigerated at 40° F or lower. Opened cans or jars of fruit and fruit-based products generally should be consumed within a week. Once subjected to air, applesauce is more likely to spawn spoilage bacterial growth and mold.
