Here are a few more common questions about Lifeway Kefir...Where is the expiration date on the bottle? How long will my kefir stay good after I open it?
The easiest way to find the expiration date on your bottle of Lifeway Kefir is to turn it sideways like a ship in a bottle. Notice how the bottle has rounded corners? The date will likely be printed on or near one of those corners. Check out the photo below for example:
You might notice that kefir has a pretty long shelf life - this is thanks to the same culturing process that gives it the live and active probiotics that you love. So it's not uncommon to buy a bottle and see an expiration date that isn't for a month or two in the future.
Now that you know when your kefir expires, how long do you have to drink it once the bottle has been opened? Good news - your kefir is good until the expiration date, no matter when you open the bottle. Unlike plain milk and other dairy (and even soy) products, there's no rush to consume the whole bottle once it's been opened. We do hope, of course, that you'll love it so much that you can't help but finish the whole thing in a hurry, though.
