Tips

  • How long does opened frozen sorbet last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep frozen sorbet frozen at all times.
  • How long does opened frozen sorbet last in the freezer? Opened frozen sorbet that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will maintain best quality for about 2 to 4 months in the freezer.
  • To maximize the shelf life of frozen sorbet after opening, place plastic wrap over the surface of the exposed frozen sorbet before re-closing the package; this will minimize the formation of ice crystals and prevent the loss of texture.
  • Is opened frozen sorbet safe to eat after the "expiration" date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially packaged frozen sorbet 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 frozen sorbet will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will opened frozen sorbet remain safe to eat? Opened frozen sorbet 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.
