How To Store Feta Cheese

Proper storage is crucial to maintaining the quality and safety of feta cheese. Follow these guidelines to ensure your feta cheese stays fresh:

  1. Keep feta cheese in its original packaging or store it in an airtight container to prevent exposure to air and moisture.
  2. Store feta cheese in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). The cold temperature helps slow down bacterial growth.
  3. If the feta cheese is packed in brine, ensure it is fully submerged to prevent drying out and spoilage. For maximum freshness, consume feta cheese within one to two weeks of opening.
