    I found an old 10 lbs bad with about 1/3 left from 3 yrs ago. I can't find the expiration on the bag. How long do these last?

    It's printed really lightly near the top of the 10 lb. bags. Took me a while to find it the first time too.

    I just bought 2 5# buckets on the 20th of Nov '07 and the expiration date says 09/09.

    I'd say as long as it's not clumpy (moisture intrusion), smells funny, or is a strange color, you should be allright. Though a sealed bag would be much safer.

    If it makes you sick.........

    Your bag only good for 2 yrs? Mine is already 3 yrs. I still don't see any expiration on the bag. I tried it last night and it's not clumpy, smell ok, and taste fine. I'm not sick yet. Oh well minus well finish it.

    The expiration date has more to do with the potency of the protein. As the powder interacts with with air, the protein degrades so you'll have less protein per scoop then the label says. and to cover themselves from being sued for having false nutritional info, they put an expiry date on it.

    so as long as its been kept dry, its fine. once its gotten wet/damp, all bets are off
