I have a couple of sealed packets of Hammer Sustained Energy that's about a year old. Does this stuff go bad over time?
That is, other than the taste of it, which is horrendous no matter how fresh it is. :)
Depends on the stuff in it and the storage conditions. In general, the answer is yes.

Doesn't go bad. Mix in some Hammer Gel for flavor. I've never barfed it up. (Highest cycling food compliment there is.)

Most of it has an expiration date. All of my Hammer powders do. Generally over a year, though.

I think Gatorade has a half life of 50000 years. Cytomax, maybe a week. Everything else, somewhere in between.
