    I have about 1/4 of a tub of protein that i just realized expires shortly...

    Would it be awful to finish it off, or will it cause me to die?

    Is it more of a freshness thing or an actual this product is expiring and is going bad so stop using thing?

    Thanks.

    If it's not expired, I'd go for it. I wouldn't push it much past the expiration date because bacteria love to grow where there are lots of nutrients. Also, make sure you're storing it in a cool, dry place.

    You'll be fine. Long as you keep the container sealed and keep it out of direct sunlight it'll last a very long time (well past the "expiration date"). You will know when it goes "bad" it'll have a distinct smell...

    my tub of protein is so expired it's crazy and it makes no difference, tastes the same etc etc, but it was sealed not 1/4 of a tub, i'd still drink it though.
