  • How long does frozen lemonade concentrate last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep lemonade concentrate frozen until ready to use.
  • Properly stored, frozen lemonade concentrate will maintain best quality for about 1 year in the freezer.
  • Is frozen lemonade concentrate safe to use after the expiration date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen lemonade 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 lemonade concentrate will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen lemonade concentrate remain safe to use? Frozen lemonade 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 lemonade concentrate last once it has been prepared for drinking? Frozen lemonade concentrate that has been prepared for drinking can be kept for 5 to 7 days in the fridge; refrigerate the prepared lemonade concentrate in airtight containers.
  • How to tell if prepared lemonade concentrate is bad or spoiled? If lemonade develops an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, it should be discarded.
