Tips

  • Store in cool, dry area.
  • Discard all juice from cans that are leaking, rusting, bulging or severely dented.
  • Pantry storage time shown is for best quality only - after that, the juice's texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, it will still be safe to consume if it has remained unopened and been stored properly.
  • ? Best By, ? Best if Used By, and ? Use By dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality - in most cases, the unopened juice will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • Freeze in airtight glass or plastic container and leave at least 1/2 inch headspace at the top, as juice will expand when frozen.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only - foods kept constantly frozen at 0℉ will keep safe indefinitely.
