Soy milk in the fridge

I have a soy milk maker and it makes enough milk at one time for 3 days of my needs. How long will fresh soy milk stay in the fridge before it goes bad? It is my intention to fill 3 cups with lids as soon as I make the sm and then pop it into the fridge. It is just pure soy milk, no sugar, salt, etc. Would it last longer if I put salt in it?

I would like info on that as well please. I buy my soya milk in handy individual cartons now for making my breakfast summer porridge. I make 4 days worth at one time. Then I distribute into little pots. A little more expensive but on the other hand I am not throwing any away now after a few days as I was before when I bought the big litre size carton.

Hi I have recently changed from cow's milk to soya milk and am hoping experienced users of soya milk can help me.

The type I buy is long life unsweetened soya (from Tesco).

I live alone and have become accustomed to the fridge life of cow's milk. After it's about 5 days old, I start sniffing it before use to find out if it has gone off.

I am finding that once I open the soya milk and put it in the fridge, it never gets that sour smell and the only way I can find out if it has gone off is to put it in my tea. Then it curdles and I have to throw away the tea AND the milk, wasting tea bags.

My questions are:

- how long does soya milk last once it has been opened and put in the fridge?

- is there a way of telling if soya milk has gone off without putting it in my tea or tasting it?

- does it freeze well (I am thinking to split the litre into quarters and freeze them, taking one out every other day).

- if I want to take 100ml on a journey with me, to use in tea later, does it last about as long as cow milk does out of the fridge, or longer or shorter?

- if it HAS gone off, and I do not notice, because it does not smell, will it make me ill like cow milk does?
