Just 4 oz. of pineapple juice provides 50 percent of the RDA amount for vitamin C and can account for 25 percent of the MyPyramid Fruit Group daily allowance. Pineapple juice has a tropical and tart flavor, making it a common choice for mixed drinks or as a cold beverage served on its own. Pineapple juice tends to spoil easily, so it is best to take the extra effort to preserve its flavor and shelf life.

Step 1

Store freshly juiced pineapple juice in a glass bottle with a secure lid. Place the bottle in a cool, dry area of the refrigerator.

Step 2

Keep unopened store-bought bottled or canned pineapple juice in a cupboard for up to 18 months. After opening, immediately store it in the refrigerator and consume within eight to 10 days.

Step 3

Freeze pineapple juice in a glass or plastic container. Leave at least 1/2 inch off the top of the container to allow room for expansion as it freezes. If you keep it frozen at 0 degrees Fahrenheit, you can store it indefinitely.
