Refrigerated royal jelly storage

by Ivana


I bought a small jar of royal jelly at a farmers market in August. The vendor kept it in a cooler, and I put it in a cooler until I got home and could refrigerate it. I've been careful to keep it refrigerated since. It's in a clear glass jar with a metal lid. It's now February, 6 months later, and I think the smell has changed a little. It used to have a gentle tangy honey smell, and now it has a sort of cheesy sour milk smell. Does this mean it has spoiled? What are the optimal storage conditions for fresh royal jelly, so I can take better care in the future?

Likely yes Ivana. For longer term storage greater than a month, I recommend you freeze fresh royal jelly.
