Tub of expired whey powder

Found a tub of whey in the corner of my cupboard. It's the all natural, no flavour straight whey stuff. Expiration date on it says it went bad six months ago.

I have been thinking of giving whey a go again lately so finding this half empty tub was timely. Had a bad luck digesting the junk in the past so I don't want to spend money on another tub. In all seriousness, is it safe to eat?

Just a bit confused here...if you had trouble with digestion before, why do you want to use it again?

Have you tried a product with digestive enzymes?

Re: Tub of expired whey powder

I don't know. Sucker for punishment I guess? Maybe I wasn't drinking enough water the first time around? Hope for a change?

Whey is such an easy way to get more protein so I really want it to work...

Plus, my diet's been pretty standard lately so I figure I would easily be able to tell the effects of anything new introduced.

Good question though.

As for digestive enzymes: No. I don't think so anyway. Recommendations?

I'd just throw out the stuff you have. Relatively speaking, whey is pretty inexpensive (even with the recent increases), and with the issues you had last time, the best bet would be to pick up a new tub...

As well, I don't know if you have any special requirements or anything, but a popular pick is this stuff:

I wouldn't expect 6 months past the due date to be a problem if it was stored correctly (cool, dry). On the other hand, if you've had trouble before with that specific product, why risk it?

Go ahead and eat it. I can't imagine what would go wrong with properly stored whey...

I don't think bugs eat whey powder. I think they follow Paleo diet, so you should be OK.

Re: Tub of expired whey powder

You guys got to try American Whey Protein. It is the best and easy to digest because I have a weak stomach. Choc tastes incredible. Van is good also. Never tried the other flavors. Google it and I buy 25 pound tubs. Just ordered 2.
I dont work for them or get anything out of it. I tried so many and this is by far the best. Low Fat Low Carb High Protein. Add the fats and Carbs you want.
I think that expire date is to cover their Butt. 6 months isnt that bad. I have stuff 2 years old and no problem. Probably not as potent.

Aw. I should just listen to reason.

I guess I'll toss it. I started browsing for other options seeing as how it will probably not work any better the second time around. Maybe when I get the extra cash I'll try some egg powders. Cash needs to go towards weights at the moment.
