Fresh mozzarella cheese is best consumed within a few days of purchase due to its high moisture content. Processed mozzarella cheese, such as the one used for pizza, can have a longer shelf life of several weeks if stored properly in the refrigerator. Always check the expiration date and follow storage instructions on the packaging.
Can You Freeze It?
Yes, mozzarella cheese can be frozen. However, freezing may alter its texture, causing it to become slightly grainy when thawed. It is best to use frozen mozzarella cheese in cooked dishes rather than consuming it as is.
