Tips

  • How long does frozen orange juice concentrate last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep orange juice concentrate frozen until ready to use.
  • Properly stored, frozen orange juice concentrate will maintain best quality for about 1 year in the freezer.
  • Is frozen orange juice concentrate safe to use after the expiration date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen orange juice concentrate will typically carry a "Best By," "Best if Used By," Best Before, or "Best When Used By" date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the orange juice concentrate will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen orange juice concentrate remain safe to use? Frozen orange juice concentrate that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How long does frozen orange juice concentrate last once it has been prepared for drinking? Frozen orange juice concentrate that has been prepared for drinking can be kept for 5 to 7 days in the fridge; refrigerate the prepared orange juice concentrate in airtight containers.
  • How to tell if prepared orange juice concentrate is bad or spoiled? If orange juice develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, it should be discarded.
