Freeze drying your breast milk can provide extended life and make it self stable based on findings by the USDA. Freeze dried foods may last up to 25 years when kept in proper temperature storage and free of oxygen and moisture. There are many factors that affect storage times including fat ratios, temperature and exposer to UV sunlight. Lower fat ratio milk has a longer shelf life. Every Mama’s milk is unique in its makeup and will vary over 3 years. All BoobieJuice Pouches are good for 3 Years and with inspection can last much longer up to 10 years. Each BoobieJuice Pouch is made from a proprietary triple layer high barrier film, designed for commercial vacuum sealing, that does not allow oxygen or moisture to pass. Make sure to inspect your pouch for punctures prior to opening. We recommend keeping your pouches in a cool and dark place. Ideally in a room temperature environment below 80F and away from direct sunlight. Once open, please consume within 3o days after opening and resealing. Well kept pouches can last 3+ years from their packaging date and up to 10 years when stored properly and inspected. Freeze dried breast milk with vary in aroma from a sweet to a cheesy aroma.

Freeze drying your breastmilk can help! The less time breast milk is stored in a freezer, the less time lipase has to breakdown fats. If you are prone to higher lipase, freeze drying can be an affective solution to optimally store your breast milk. Freeze drying removes the water and deactivates the lipase enzyme. This stops the enzyme from breaking down fats and helps retain the overall nutrition while in storage. The sooner you can freeze dry the breastmilk, the better overall taste, aroma and nutrition for baby. Lock in the nutrition and taste of your babies superfood by freeze drying your stash today while saving space in the freezer! Check out this article and links Freeze Drying vs Freezer

Using your Freeze Dried Breast Milk
Yes, your pouches contain around 15g of breast milk powder and are clearly marked. No need to refrigerate or keep cool.
On the back of each BoobieJuice package is the exact water needed to reconstitute your milk to its original nutrition ratios.
- Warm clean purified water in a separate container
- Measure out the required water amount per instruction on the back of the pouch.
- Add BoobieJuice powder to the bottle.
- Add the required amount of water to the bottle and swirl.
- If clumps remain after a minute of swirling, place the bottle into a warm water bath or under warm running water. Swirl again.
- Depending on the fat constitution, it may take up to 5 minutes for the warm water and powder to dissolve. Be Patient.
We recommend pressing out all of the air from the unused portion and resealing the portion. Both On the GO and At Home Pouches if properly resealed can be stored up to 30 days after opening. Please keep the pouch at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.
On average there is 20kcal per oz of breast milk. This then equates to an average of .1oz of freeze dried powder. Add as little or as much to fortify foods based on your babies nutritional needs. Keep in mind, each powder pouch is equal to one of your original bottles. Your powder is loaded with beneficial proteins, pre/probiotics, fats, sugars and immune response agents. A power packed nutrition boost for the kcal intake. Your breast milk’s nutrition varies each day due to the time of day expressed and your dietary intake. The nutrition you consume is actively passed through into milk production. Your freeze dried pouches will exhibit the same variations. For specific nutritional density, we offer breast milk nutritional testing through Lactation Lab. Should you be interested in specific nutritional densities, BoobieJuice can help facilitate powder testing or we can send you a testing kit to analyze your fresh milk with recommendation from Lactation Labs!
Each individual pouch has the specific rehydration requirements for you. A typical 6oz bag will have 0.6 oz of powdered breast milk and will require 5.4fl oz of water. Typically you will see a 90% reduction in a breast milk bag when it is Freeze Dried. See the individual pouch details for specific rehydration needs.
- Store pouches in a cool dry place indoors and out of direct sunlight.
- Once a pouch is open, seal it tightly and use within 48 hours. Leave it at room temperature. Do not place inside a refrigerator.
Rehydrated Breast Milk
- Use within 2 hours of rehydration and 1 hour after beginning to feed. Saliva can cause bacteria growth.
- If unused within 2 hours, place milk in the refrigerator and use within 24 hours.
- Do not freeze re-hydrated milk.
- Discard any unused milk after 24 hours.
- Sanitize bottles between use.
We recommend using clean filtered water. Reverse osmosis water or vapor distilled water are great options and have very low to zero total dissolved solids. Total dissolved solids include all organic and inorganic dissolved contaminants including metals, salts, minerals, and ions.
Filtered retail packaged bottled waters are convenient options. Remember, the water you use may have varying levels of trace elements TDS. If you are looking to remove any excess mineral additives distilled water is your best option.
We would recommend staying away from tap water as there are higher total dissolved solids including salts, calcium, chlorine, fluorides, and heavy metals. There are many choices you can make based on your lifestyle and water requirements. Chose what is appropriate for you and your baby.
