Just wondering how long Tofu is good in the fridge (cooked and uncooked). Same for Rice cheese, and soy milk.<br><br>
I don't want to waste anything so I am wondering how long it all lasts in the fridge, so I can use it up before it goes bad <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:">

On the packaging of the soy milk I use, It says use within 3 days, but I drink mine for a week and it's still good. I only use it in coffee or the occassional smoothie, so it does take a while to use it up. With the tofu, opened or not? Unopened it should be good til the use by date. If it's opened and you aren't gonna be using it in a few days, chuck it in the freezer. Can't help with the cheese sorry.

Soy milk -- 7 to 10 days according to the soy milk I buy at the grocery store, only a few days for the soy milk I buy in bags at the Chinese market. I've never had grocery store soy milk go bad before I finished it.<br><br><br><br>
Tofu -- I buy Chinese waterpack tofu in big tubs and it lasts 2-3 weeks with water changes once or twice a week.

I just keep my tofu until it starts to get yellow/smelly/moldy. Usually if I don't think I'm going to use it within a week of opening it I throw it in the freezer. My soymilk usually lasts about two weeks. If I'm unsure I just make sure it doesn't smell weird. If there are chunks in your soymilk it's bad.<br><br><br><br>
For soy cheese I just keep it until it turns a funny color, I assume rice cheese is similar. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

Is the Rice cheese individually wrapped slices or does it come in a block? The wrapped should last, oh, I dunno... 75 years or so (not really, check the date, heh.. but they do last pretty long). Block soy cheese goes bad really quickly for me but that is probably due to the fact that the fridge isn't set as low as it could stand to be, and there are a lot of people living in this house so the fridge gets opened (and left open <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:"> constantly. I have noticed, however, that avoiding handling the cheese with your bare hands helps keep it a bit longer. I guess the bacteria from even clean hands is enough to make it turn...
