How Long Fresh-Squeezed Lemon And Lime Juices Last In The Fridge
Fresh-squeezed lemon or lime juice should be consumed within one to four days for optimal taste and safety. However, proper storage techniques can help extend their shelf life.
After juicing a citrus fruit, transfer the juice to an airtight container and place it in the refrigerator as soon as possible so it doesn’t oxidize and turn less fresh.
Without proper storage, bacteria will start to form and the taste will become bitter and off-putting. When citrus juice has gone bad, it may develop a strange odor and color.
