Shelf Life 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.
