FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT SHELF LIFE
We often get questions regarding the shelf life of our various products. As you know, most of our products are fermented which is a natural preservation technique that makes them very shelf stable. However, there is a window of time where we feel our products keep the exact flavor profile we are looking for. For the products that change their flavor profile rather quickly, we will be adding a "Made on" date to them. If the product does not have a "Made on" date, then that product does not change its flavor profile fast enough to require a date. Please note that if the product remains outside of the fridge for an extended period of time, then that will affect the longevity of that product.
The product has a "Made on" date, but how long can I enjoy it for?
Here are the guidelines for those products:
Coconut Zingy Yogurt - Since our yogurt is a live food, it quickly transforms it's flavor profile in the coming days after it's been jarred. The yogurt will become less sweet and more tart, but they don't technically expire, they just get zingier over time! If they have been stored in the fridge, we recommend enjoying them within 7-10 days for the best flavor profile.
Coconut Milks - We recommend enjoying our Plain Coconut Milk within 7 days and our Chocolate and Golden flavors within 10 days if they have been stored in the fridge. These products are fresh, not fermented.
Coconut Frappes - We recommend enjoying our Cold Brew and Dandy flavors within 7 days and our Matcha flavor within 10 days if they have been stored in the fridge. These products are fresh, not fermented.
Coconut Creamer - We recommend enjoying our Coconut Creamer within 10 days if is has been stored in the fridge. This product is fresh, not fermented.
Elderberry Syrup - We recommend enjoying our Elderberry Syrup within 3 weeks if it has been stored in the fridge. This product is fresh, not fermented.
The product does not have a date of any kind, so how long can I enjoy it for?
Here are the guidelines for our most popular products:
Bone Broth - We recommend enjoying it within 2 weeks once it has defrosted in the fridge or storing it up to 1 year in the freezer.
Kombucha and Jun - We recommend drinking your Kombucha or Jun within 3 months if it has been stored in the fridge. After 3 months, the product will be noticeably more tart, but can still be consumed.
Master Tonic - This product is very shelf stable and can be stored up to 1 year in the fridge.
Fermented Veggies - Our various fermented veggies can be enjoyed up to 6 months if stored in the fridge. After 6 months, the veggies will be noticeably more sour, but can still be consumed.
