  • How long does unopened carrot juice last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - to maximize the shelf life of unopened carrot juice, keep it refrigerated at all times.
  • How long does unopened carrot juice last in the fridge? Unopened carrot juice will generally stay at best quality for about 1 week after the date on the package, assuming it has been continuously refrigerated.
  • To further extend the shelf life of opened carrot juice, freeze it: to freeze carrot juice, store in airtight container and leave at least 1/2 inch headspace at the top, as carrot juice will expand when frozen.
  • How long does carrot juice last in the freezer? Properly stored, it will maintain best quality for about 8 to 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — carrot juice that has been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How long does carrot juice last after being frozen and thawed? Carrot juice that has been defrosted in the fridge can be kept for an additional 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator before using; carrot juice that was thawed in the microwave or in cold water should be used immediately.
  • How can you tell if opened carrot juice is bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the carrot juice: if the carrot juice develops an off odor, flavor or appearance it should be discarded.
