Alpha formulas are labeled with a best used before date. This is a
conservative estimate of shelf-life at room temperature. The formulas are
stable, except when exposed to temperatures higher that 80 degrees F. for more
than a few days. Properly stored, formulas are stable and will not suddenly
expire. If you want to store the formula beyond the best used date, simply
refrigerate. The formula can be stored in a freezer to extend its shelf life.
Alpha ENF is a perishable food. Since most of the formula is sold directly to
end users, formulas usually arrive with several months of shelf life. Check the
best used date when the formula arrives and plan to use it all before that date.
The formula should be stored in a cool location, below 72 degrees F. Exposing
the formula to increased heat will decrease shelf life and is associated with
increased odors when you open the jar. Avoid exposing the packaged formula to
direct sunlight and temperatures above 72 degrees F. Refrigerate open jars of
the formula if possible.
After mixing nutrient formulas in juice, the mix will ferment quickly if
warm. Keep refrigerated or carry in a thermos with added ice.
Alpha PMX, DMX and AAX have longer shelf-lives than Alpha ENF because they do
not contain the lipid (fat) component which tends to oxidize over time and go
rancid. When using PMX as a meal replacement, a vegetable oil can be stored
separately in an airtight, opaque container and added to Alpha PMX when consumed
to achieve complete nutrition.
Once mixed with water or juice, Alpha ENF, PMX, DMX are perishable because
they are excellent nutrient mixes. The growth of micro-organisms spoil food.
Micro-organisms love nutrients and grow rapidly in such a complete nutrient
solution. The micro-organisms come from the air and from the surface of utensils
you use to mix and hold the formula. To avoid the growth of micro-organisms, it
is better to mix and use the formula as you need it. Should you want to keep
mixed formula for more than 3 hours in liquid form, store it in the
refrigerator. It can be carried in a thermos as a cold drink (mixed with ice)
for up to 8 hours. Since it is easy to carry the formula as a powder, mix with
water or juice whenever you want a serving.
