1. Says best used by 03-2015, so that would be 2 years. Personally, if you can keep it in a dry, cool place I think it would keep many more years.
2. I've been using dried milk for about 5 years, let me give you 3 advices:
1) Usually, the expiry period is about 12 - 18 months if kept in the original sealed container in a dry place.
2) It is a RULE that you should always review your stock. Try using the already present food and replace it with new food. This will extend your storage period.
3) DON'T USE LARGE PACKAGES FOR STORAGE. Instead use multiple small packages. example: use 8 of 8 oz packages instead of one 64oz package.
3. I wouldn't keep this on a shelf more than six months unopened. It doesn't specify.
beprepared.com has big cans of milk powder that will keep for years unopened.
5. Due to differences in sales and distribution, the remaining shelf life of an item may vary from store to store. We recommend consuming the product by the expiration date printed on the package.
6. The last I purchased was shown as best if used by 8-22-14 so I would say the shelf life is 2 years. I use this as my main source of milk because it is easy to keep.
7. I think it was marked about 18 months. But you can probably freeze it.
8. 18 months. You need to buy specially packaged milk for anything longer. Do a web search.
9. For my order, all of them said best before 10/10/15 (24 months after received)
Hope this help
10. Each box has an expiration date.
11. March 15, 2015. I just found a sealed four pound box that got out of rotation. The 'best by' date was January 13, 2012. Opened the foil seal, poured some out - looked okay, smelled okay, tasted okay.
Made a quart and set it in the fridge. Tasted just fine when I made it and even better after it was nice and cold. No gastric distress six hours later.
Bear in mind that in most cases the 'best by' date is just a suggestion; it's not as if the milk would be fine on January 13 and foul and nasty and toxic on January 14.
No, it will NOT last as long as the powdered milk in the sealed No. 10 cans with the oxygen absorber packets, but as long as the outer wrapper is intact and it's stored in a cool, dry place it should be good for some time after the 'best by' date (at least three years and three months based upon direct experience), although the nutrition may diminish slightly over time.
12. There are too many factors that go into how old a product found on the shelf of your local store may be. We recommend referring to the best by/expiration date on the package. We do not recommend consuming the product after the expiration date. If there is not an expiration date on the product, we suggest returning it to your store for a refund/exchange.
13. I bought this in 4-2013 and the expiration date on the box is 2- 2015
