    So I was cleaning out my pantry cupboard and found this little container of essential amino acids in powder form but the use by date was Sept 08 which was 2 months ago.

    The powder is still soft but I'm afraid to try it incase I get something bad. :noes:
    Are they still usable or should I throw it out? :hsd:

    starts to lose potency after use by date, but should still be good for something

    I think with most stuff like that the expiration date is just for potency purposes and it shouldn't actually get you sick.

    That being said, I hate being sick so I probably wouldn't take it anyway.. just in case. Especially for something you can buy brand new for like $15

    FDA requires it

    in some cases it loses potency, in some it flat out expires, and in some it doesn't mean shit

    Yeah, well... That's just fucking retarded.

    Big difference between expired BCAA's and expired milk/protein.
