It is recommended that yogurt be used within seven days of opening it. If the whey separates from the rest of the yogurt, liquid may form on top of the yogurt. The liquid whey is safe to stir back into the yogurt and consume. Additionally, it’s important to note that the fermentation process used to create yogurt extends its shelf life in comparison to milk, so yogurt will last longer than milk after it’s created.3

Making Greek yogurt uses more milk than regular yogurt because some of the whey (liquid) is removed to give it a more thick and creamy texture. On average, Greek yogurt has twice the amount of protein of regular yogurt and has less lactose, which can be helpful for children that are lactose intolerant.
