    using expired mass gainer protein?


    Ordered some mass gainer for dirt cheap...10 bucks for 4.5 lbs 20 servings, 32 grams of protein total carb 49 grams. I am actually just using this as a meal replacement bc it appears very healthy compared to weight gainers. So got it for a steal, but discovered it expires in march..any warnings about comsuming expired protein?

    personally I wouldn't eat it if it was like a couple yrs expired. that's if its unopened. if its opened and expired by much I just throw it out...
    nothing worse than rancid protein.

    If it wasn't opened i'm sure it is fine. I've had expired protein (about 3 months expired) before and it was fine.

    dude its fine. as long as it mixes well and doesn't taste funny, you'll be fine. the companies are required to date them but in most cases they're fine for at least another 6 months. its also depends on how they are stored too. if they're sitting on a shelf in the sun all day at the store chances are the date might hold more value. but if it was in a cool warehouse or in your closet there's nothing to worry about!

    Yea, you're totally fine. Most of the time those dates are for retailers to make sure they're pulled from shelves. They'll be good for many more months.
