Tastes great inABOUT Shelf-Stable
Be cereal-ready in seconds, or smoothie-ready, or whatever ready you like. Shelf-Stable means you can enjoy that feeling of being prepared—because you can stock up and store it safely in the pantry until you’re ready to use it (before the expiration date of course). Like regular Silk®, our shelf-stable almondmilk, oatmilk and soymilk are vegan and free of dairy, lactose, gluten, carrageenan, and artificial flavors and colors. So clear a spot in the pantry and stock up.
What is Shelf-Stable?
Shelf-Stable packaging means refrigeration is not needed before opening. You can stock up and store it unopened in the pantry for months, without sacrificing taste. Shelf-Stable Silk® is just what you’d expect—smooth almondmilk made with California almond butter, creamy oatmilk made from soaked and slow-cooked oats, and soymilk from whole-harvested American-grown soybeans.
What’s the difference between Shelf-Stable and refrigerated Silk®?
To put it simply: the way it’s produced and the way it’s packaged. Thanks to Tetra Pak® packaging technology, our shelf-stable cartons keep out light and air, locking in nutrients and delicious taste. Before we box it up, we also make minor adjustments to ingredients and formulation so Shelf-Stable Silk® can last for months unopened in the pantry. Some people like to chill it before drinking, but we’ll leave that one up to you. And once it’s opened, of course, it needs to be stored in the fridge and used within 7-10 days.
