It says to consume within 5 days after opening, but i only get through half in about a week and then iv got to throw away the rest, iv never been a big milk consumer but i do need it for cereal, cooking and with my tea, i hate wasting stuff
Any ideas??? Does anyone else have this problem?

I've never had soy milk go off. 3 weeks+ and no problems. But I do have notoriuosly cast-iron guts. I just do a sniff test before pouring. Can't remember a case of it going off on me except one time I left a carton out overnight during summer. But I don't really drink soy milk anymore. Never really found it went right taste-wise with anything.

I had the same issue, but then I started drinking tea, got back into cooking, and am thinking about eating cereal for breakfast. It does say to drink after 5 days of opening, but I can have soy milk for over 2 weeks and it's still fine. Soy milk is a long lasting milk, so if you can't get through it in a week, don't worry about it. I'm pretty sure I've had my current carton for at least 2 weeks. Some people might think it's gross, but it tastes just as good as it did the day I opened it...

Just a quick thing on the cereals topic. I've always been a muesli guy and I switched to fruit juice like a mango nectar base and never looked back! Best move I ever made! Makes my morning cereal lovely, fresh, fruity and light. No gross milky-bloaty type feeling.

Same here! I could have the same bottle of soy milk in my fridge for a month and still happily drink it.

most coles/woolies shops actually sell little poppa 6 packs of soy milk, maybe this is for you?
Otherwise, you could always try freezing half a batch. I've never had problems with freezing soy milk but I have heard other people having problems doing it.

If I have soy milk in the fridge that is going to go bad if I don't use it, I whip up a batch of muffins/cupcakes with it. Waste not want not!

I hardly ever read those labels, call me gross but i'll only not consume if its physically mouldy. I had oat milk in my fridge for about 4 months (opened) and was still slowly going through it and it was completely fine. Its different to cows milk and other animal products with that sort of stuff, IMO vegan things keep way longer.
Soy is expensive, i wouldnt bother throwing it out, seems like a bit of a waste if its not actually 'off'.

Yeah man, that oat milk lasts forever. I switched to oat milk for a while before giving up on milk substitutes entirely. Almond milk is the bomb and lasts ages too.
