I received colostrum by Federal Express, from a colostrum bank and it was completely thawed when I got it, but it was still cold. I called the place right away and was told if I don't use it in a couple of days it won't be any good and I can't refreeze it, so I threw it out. They said they would send me another one.
The next day another woman called at the colostrum bank and said I could refreeze it, but too late, I already threw it out. She wasn't happy I threw it out and didn't want to replace it, but finally decided to send me another one.
It's a highly regarded veternarian clinic, so I would think they would know what they're talking about.
I got the new one today and this one was partially thawed, maybe 20% thawed out. I put it in the freezer right away and now it's completely frozen again. Do you think the colostrum will have lost it's integrity or do you think it's still good?
Exactly what I was thinking. If you can't refreeze meat and other food products, why would it be alright to refreeze colostrum.
