    Hi

    I've just cracked open a tub of Whey Protein that's been sat half- used in the back of my cupboard for 6-7 weeks now... It smells a little cheesy. Does this stuff go off or is it OK to consume still?

    Thanks

    7 weeks? It'll be fine.

    It'll have a use by date on it somewhere.

    hmm i don't think so, I take Progain, that stuff has a lot of whey protein, and I think it's fine for 6 months or so, unless they add something to it to make it last longer. But really you should check the expiry date, you have no idea how long it has been stored until it gets to you.

    The expiry is 2008 but I just wondered as I had already opened it.... Thanks. If I don't post back within 24 hours you'll know, it killed me ;)

    Update: Tastes a little 'chewy' but seeing as it's the only stuff I have left, I'll chow down. :)
