    What happens when whey protein powder expires?

    I've got a 5lb jug that expired about 2 months ago and I'm just wondering if it's effectiveness is decreased, if it might actually be bad for me, or what?

    Also I've seen powder that suggests you can add it to pancake batter etc (I think it was soy)... does cooking the protein like that decrease it's effectiveness?

    once the expire date is reached it becomes explosive and will explode upon contact with oxygen, use extreme caution around any expired whey protein





    but seriously i'd just drink it

    as long as its not all clumpy you're good, but even if it is old dont worry about it, its just protein

    No ill effects from drinking it

    And it tasted pretty grub in pancake batter, fyi.


    I just don't want to be counting the number of proteins it says it has if it's broken down and is less effective now. *shrugs* Oh well, I guess I'll just finish it off and not worry about it.
