Danone products Product shelf life

How is the expiration date read?

The date written on our product is in the following format: YYYYMMDD HH:MM B (Year / Month / Day /Hour / Machine)

How long is the product edible after the expiry date?

Like all dairy products, yogurt should preferably be eaten before the "best before" date. However, there is no danger in eating the product a few days after this date if it has been properly refrigerated. We recommend that the product not be eaten once seven days have passed since the expiry date.

Can I freeze a yogurt or dairy dessert?

It is possible to freeze yogurt or a dairy dessert, such as at night to keep it cold longer in the lunch box the next day. However, the texture will not be as creamy as usual and the product will need to be stirred well. For yogurts that contain probiotics, such as Activia and DanActive, their properties may be reduced.

How long should a product be kept after opening?

We guarantee the product's freshness until the expiry date. However, it is possible to contaminate yogurt without realizing it when using the same large container several times (with saliva or other food). Therefore, its texture may be altered (e.g. more liquid).

Can I consume a product that has been stored at room temperature?

Because yogurt contains heat-activated fermenting agents, it should not be stored at room temperature. Exposure to room temperature for one hour should not have major consequences, but is nevertheless not recommended.
