Yoghurt is a dairy product as the main ingredient which is processed in such a way by means of a pasteurization process, the addition of bacteria, until it is packaged in sterile conditions for consumption. So it is recommended to be stored in the refrigerator at 4 degrees Celsius or stored in the refrigerator. With storage in the refrigerator, yogurt can last about 17-21 days depending on the product instructions on the packaging.
If you use yogurt and consume it in small quantities or part of the packaged yogurt, then you should provide a glass, or small plate according to your consumption needs. Then, you can scoop out with a clean spoon the portion you want and then store the remaining yogurt back in the refrigerator.
If you store yogurt, whether it's opened or still closed, it can last up to 2 hours, so it's best to consume it immediately or store it in the refrigerator.
The risk of wrong storage, there will be a risk of causing digestive diseases due to the growth of more bacteria from food that is not stored in proper conditions.
