HOW LONG DOES SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK LAST?
Like all dairy products, condensed milk can go bad. Because of the sugar, the shelf life of sweetened condensed milk is longer than that of its unsweetened counterpart.
While still in the can, condensed milk has a shelf life of at least a year past the printed expiration date.
If you store unopened condensed milk properly and the can stays intact, it can keep quality for years, just like other canned goods. Even if yours is “expired,” it’s definitely worth checking its quality.
HOW TO TELL IF SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK HAS GONE BAD?
To tell if condensed milk has gone bad, the easiest way is to check for any visual changes. Condensed milk is typically a pale creamy color (see photos), but will darken and become more yellow over time.
The milk will also become quite thick. Condensed milk is typically thick, but can still be poured. If you can no longer pour it, it has likely spoiled and should not be consumed.
Smell is another indicator of spoilage. Condensed milk typically has a sweet, creamy smell. If the milk begins to smell sour or unpleasant, get rid of it.
