Shelf Life Tips

  • How long does flavored water last once opened? The precise answer depends to a large extent on storage conditions — keep opened flavored water refrigerated and tightly closed.
  • How long does flavored water last in the refrigerator once opened? Flavored water that has been continuously refrigerated will keep at best quality for about 3 to 5 days after opening.
  • Is opened flavored water safe to drink after the "expiration" date on the bottle? Yes, provided it is properly stored and the bottle is undamaged - commercially packaged flavored water 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 flavored water will remain at peak quality.
  • How can you tell if opened flavored water is bad? If the flavored water develops an off odor, flavor or appearance it should be discarded.
