thanks for the info! I thought it was the sell by date, and once i open it it goes bad...milk lasts me like a week....tho i did notice the almond milk seemed to last a little longer...ill see if it can reach 10 days fine....that would be nice, since I am the only one in the house and only use milk with cereal lol
It is actually a sell by date--which factors in a home usage time period. AND will usually be good for at least 1 week at home when refrigerated properly.

All foods that have a "use by" date, or a "fresh until" date, assume this is UNOPENED.
I have found from my own use, that almond milk does last a bit longer. I usually have mine in the fridge for a week - to ten days, at the office. I have not noticed a taste difference or a consistency difference at teh 10 day mark. (doesn't mean it's good, i suppose, but how else would you tell?)
I've not gotten sick drinking 7-10 day old almond milk, if it was kept cold.

I started using Almond Breeze Almond milk in place of lowfat milk for cereal and baking. It seems to me that the date is a "use by" date, in other words, it should stay good at least until the date marked even if its been opened. It definitely lasts longer than regular milk which is good since I am the only one in the house that uses it!
Hi, Sometimes I buy Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze instead of my usual nonfat milk for my cereal. I noticed the date on the Almond milk is later/says it lasts longer than regular milk. Does this mean you have until that date to open it/thats the sell-by date, or is it like milk where it starts expiring once you open it?
I basically just want to know how long it can last and be good? I live by myself and usually end up throwing out milk (i get the small 1/2 gallon and it usually goes sour in a week)...but the date on the almond milk makes it seem to last more like 2 weeks...is this right?
