When does protein powder expire?
A few months ago I bought 15lbs of protein powder. Just now I got done with the 5lb package and I'm about to start the 10lb bag. I can't find an expiration date anywhere on the bag or the other package. It's Optimum Nutriotion brand, if that's important.
Did I just waste a good 50 bucks?
I have stuff two years old about to expire in 4 months, I think you're fine.
You spent $50 bucks on protien powder?
You're kidding, right?
Here's a more important question.
Does hot sauce actually go bad? I found some delicious habanero sauce and tried it on a few things, only to find out later that it expired five years ago. Why am I still alive?
Based on my own supply of supplements & their expiration dates, protein powder is usually good for 1-2 years.
According to my friend, hotsauce actually gets better as it gets older. His reasoning? He thinks it does, therefore it does.

First off, if you are buying "protein powder" that is composed of ingredients non-related to protien (fillers, sugars, etc..) then weight means little. Sugar is probably twice as heavy as pure whey proein for instance.
I usually buy from Vitamin World since they are almost always having a 50% off or "2 for 1" sale.
Most people eat WAY too much protein and it just ends up going down the pipes anyway.
I haven't tasted what comes out of a dog's ass so I'll just have to defer to the experts. ;)
Can't remember the sugar content, but I didn't buy a weight gainer, so it's mostly protein.
I bought from bodybuilding.com, so that's probably my mistake.
I only get about 120g of protein per day if I keep to my schedule (i.e. eat instead of saying "I'll eat later")
Like I said, it's taken me like 4 months now to finish a 5lb container.
The best way to buy is in bulk and then split it up with a freind or three:
My friends all left me for the military. The ones that didn't, are nerds. :(
