Tips

  • How long do canned or bottled mixed nuts last after opening? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep canned or bottled mixed nuts in a cool, dry area.
  • To maximize the shelf life of canned or bottled mixed nuts after opening, keep the container tightly sealed.
  • How long do canned or bottled mixed nuts last at room temperature once opened? Properly stored, canned or bottled mixed nuts will last for about 1 month at normal room temperature after opening.
  • Should you refrigerate canned or bottled mixed nuts? To further extend the shelf life of canned or bottled mixed nuts, keep them in the refrigerator.
  • How long do canned or bottled mixed nuts last in the refrigerator once opened? Canned or bottled mixed nuts will keep well for about 6 months in the refrigerator after opening.
  • Can you freeze canned or bottled mixed nuts? Yes, freeze canned or bottled mixed nuts in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • How long do canned or bottled mixed nuts last in the freezer? Properly stored, canned or bottled mixed nuts will maintain best quality for about 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only - canned or bottled mixed nuts that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • Are canned or bottled mixed nuts safe to use after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, provided they are properly stored, the package is undamaged and there are no signs of spoilage (see below) - commercially packaged canned or bottled mixed nuts 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 canned or bottled mixed nuts will remain at peak quality.
  • How to tell if canned or bottled mixed nuts are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the canned or bottled mixed nuts: discard any that have an off smell or appearance; if mold appears, discard the canned or bottled mixed nuts.
