Have you ever imagined the unending flavor you can get out of ginger by making it a green tea combo?

After making the juice out of ginger, you find out that you made more than required, then what pops into your mind is can ginger juice go bad?

The answer is yes! Ginger juice like any other juice can go bad. However if accurate measures are taken to increase the shelf life, ginger juice can last for a long time.

The immediate advice is this sense it is natural herbal though it is a vegetable spicy. It is always advisable not to store for long.

This is because it depreciates its value with time. This has so many health benefits which will be discussed as you read on.


For keeping your ginger juice for a long I think you should get these for storage;

  • A Good Peeler; You can get this for as low as $10. It’s helpful in the kitchen for the peeling of fruits and vegetables.
  • Industrial Peeler; This is very good and it is of high quality. If you love making smoothies a lot in your home, is suggest you get this one.
  • Powerful Hand Sieve; I think you should get this hand sieve of three sets. It is made with a metallic handle and varies from the smallest to the biggest.
  • Juicer Machine; I call this masticator because it does the work of a perfect juicing machine. The mind-blowing thing here is that it is way cheaper than you think

How Long Does Ginger Juice Last?

Ginger juice lasts for 24 to 72 hours refrigerated. Unfrigerated ginger juice does not last more than 24 hours. Its medicinal values decrease as it goes with time.


You can always store your fruit drink in an airtight container preferably a bottle ( rubber or can ).

However, I will not advise you to preserve your fruit drink in the freezer because when it freezes well the medicinal value will be lost.

And don’t forget that the freezer is always used for long-term storage. Try to consume your fruit drink as soon as possible.

Can You Freeze Ginger Juice?

Yes! you can freeze ginger juice as you desire and it will make it last longer. Keeping it in the freezer will make it last for 5 to 7 days before it can go south.

The reason is that if you freeze this fruit, its qualities and medicinal values will be lost as time goes on. I remember vividly when I used to work in a grocery store.

  1. That was very helpful. As an 80-years old man, I have been making two pounds of ginger at one time, and allowing them to set out, for several days; refrigerating when I found space. I discovered I had lost my sense of smell in 1995, so I have never noticed any bad taste, unless the lemon and honey hides it. Again, thanks for the information.
