    Expired Protein Powder

    Is there any reason to worry about consuming protein powder? I have a large quantity that expired back in February, but I'm not sure if it means anything. It's still dry, there is no obvious visible defect.

    Ideas?

    I doubt you'd have anything to worry about.

    Expiration dates are really just used to show how long the product has been tested to survive...just a guideline really.

    If it smells funny, throw it out. It should be pretty noticeable.

    Keep your powder dry.

    I just ate some protein bars that were 1 year past the expiration date. No problems.

    Considering there is usually dairy-based ingredients in it...
