Then, how do you know if bottled lemon juice is bad?
To tell if your lemon juice is bad you need to check three things: it's appearance, odor and taste. If it's dull or has become darker, discard it. Proceed similarly it it's odor or taste changed noticeably.
Subsequently, question is, does bottled lemon juice need to be refrigerated after opening? Lemon juice has a long shelf life because it is highly acidic, but once you open a container of it, you must refrigerate it to prevent it from spoiling within hours. Unopened canned or bottled lemon juice can stay good for as long as 18 months in the pantry.
Consequently, is lemon juice safe to use after the expiration date on the bottle?
Properly stored, opened lemon juice that has been sold unrefrigerated and contains preservatives will generally stay at best quality for about 12 to 18 months when stored in the refrigerator, although it will usually remain safe to use after that. Is lemon juice safe to use after the "expiration" date on the bottle?
