As long as the plastic storage bag is kept sealed, the contents should
be fresh for a good while - I'm thinking 3 or 4 months at least. I do all
the mixing and bagging within 3 hours after opening the bags and squeeze
any extra air out of each unit. The fruit is already dehydrated so they
last a long time. The nuts are roasted so they are more stable than raw.
Secret, don't open the bag till you're ready to eat - and each time you close
it, squeeze the air out.
What can I put you down for?
