A. For highest quality, Uncle Bob’s® does not advise freezing our sauces.
A. The shelf life of any product is measured from the date which is imprinted on the container of each product.
A. Though the vinegar base does increase the shelf life of these products, for the freshest quality, Uncle Bob’s® recommends consuming by the stamped date which reflects when the color, flavor and possibly other characteristics of the product may change. However, some prefer the aged quality of our sauces as they ferment over time.
Q. Why do some of the Uncle Bob’s® Sauces change color over time? Is the sauce still edible after discoloration?
A. Discoloration in food products is caused by—among other things—the presence of air and light and is enhanced by high temperature. While the discoloration might be only cosmetic and cause no effect on the wholesomeness of the product, the rule of thumb is “if in doubt, throw it out.”
A. All of our sauces are shelf stable food products that do not require refrigeration after opening.
