How to Store Yogurt

share this article

  • Before you buy yogurt, check the best before date on the package and choose the product with the furthest date.
  • Refrigerate yogurt immediately after you buy it and store it on the colder shelves rather than in the door.
  • Do not eat yogurt after the best before date.
  • Once the package is opened, eat the yogurt within 3 days.
  • Protect yogurt from other foods with strong odours by sealing it tightly.
  • Spoon as much yogurt as you are going to eat into your bowl with a clean spoon. To avoid cross-contamination (which will speed up spoilage), do not return unused portions to the original container.
  • Do not freeze yogurt. Freezing will affect the texture and flavour. However, it will keep in the freezer for up to 1 month if you do decide to freeze it.
