I opened my can of Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk and the color is darker than usual. Is it safe to use?

Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is made with rich and creamy all-natural ingredients. First, you’ll want to verify the production date and decide if your can is within its freshness date. As Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk ages, the product may begin to change color and thicken. If your can is within its freshness date, it’s still safe to use, and it won’t affect recipe performance.

What’s the difference between sweetened condensed milk and evaporated milk?

Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is completely different from evaporated milk. Evaporated milk can’t be substituted for recipes that ask for Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk.

You’ll see that we indicate not to use evaporated milk in our recipes. We note this because while evaporated milk is okay in certain types of recipes calling for evaporated milk, it doesn’t perform the same as sweetened condensed milk, and if used, can actually spoil a recipe calling for Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk.

How do I store unused Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk?

Cover any opened sweetened condensed milk with either plastic wrap or any plastic lid, and store in the refrigerator. If condensation appears beneath the cover, replace the lid/plastic wrap, or dry the cover.
