What is the best way to store coffee creamer?

  1. Dairy creamers should be stored at 40°F or below in the fridge. Bacterial growth takes place at a faster pace between the temperature of 40°F and 140°F, therefore it is always advised to store dairy creamers at a lower temperature to preserve their freshness and quality for a long time.
  1. Dairy coffee creamer can pick up odors therefore it should be stored in an air-tight container or bottle in the fridge. Moreover, it should be stored away from strong-smelling food items like garlic, onion, etc. 
  1. In the case of the non-dairy creamers, you can store them in a cool, dry, and dark corner of the pantry away from direct sunlight and heat as long as they are unopened but once they get opened, it is recommended to store them in the fridge in an air-tight container.
  1. In the case of the powdered coffee container, the best way to store it is to keep it in a cool, dry, and dark corner of the pantry away from direct sunlight and heat in an air-tight container.
  1. You should not store the powder coffee creamer in a humid environment. Moreover, it is advised to tightly close the lid of the powdered coffee creamer as soon as you are done scooping out the creamer that you need to minimize its air and moisture exposure that can otherwise mess up its quality and can even form lumps in it.
  1. You should never use a wet spoon to scoop out powdered coffee creamer.

Is coffee creamer safe to use after the best-before date?

The “best by” or “best before” date that is written on the carton of coffee creamer refers to the quality rather than safety so coffee creamer doesn’t necessarily go bad immediately after the best before date. 

This date refers to the time during which you can enjoy the peak quality and flavor of coffee creamer but you can still use coffee creamer that is past this date as long as it was stored properly, there is no leakage in the carton and no signs of mold are present.
