Great price for this stuff - not my fave, but still hot

I'm guessing it's out of date because it's in b&m?

picked the chocolate flavoured one of this in Norwich for £10. Expiry is August 2014. Do these things actually go off if not opened??

was this in b&m home or bargains? I only have a home next to me

it's B&M

That's what the date is for. It's likely to be a best before date on this particular product meaning you can use it after the date but every day thereafter it is not at its optimum quality.

There will be microbial growth, most likely mould. Powdered whey is a wonderful food source for all kinds of bugs that will make you sick.
Do yourself a favour and avoid, this is cheap for a reason

It's likely to be a best before date which means after this date it won't be at optimum quality.

Leaving it sealed will not matter. The best before date us based upon a sealed product.

I'd personally use it maybe few weeks after vest before date if I had to but dispose of it after that.

It's only 18 servings in this tub which is only 9 days or so if used properly anyway. It's a reasonable product but not that high on protein compared to their own cyclone. Still heat though.

RRP is £34.99 - this is a quality deal.

Utter rubbish.

Whey is good for a long long time after the BBD.

If it was dangerous it would have a use by date.

Basic food hygiene/health and safety info.

I've used 12 month past BBD and no problems. With a BBD the taste will get worse and worse. This guy is talking about something he doesn't understand.

this kinda stuff always confuses me. Can you use it to lose weight or gain muscle?

You're wrong but I have no intention of trying to change your mind, I'm happy for you to be wrong.

Best before date and use by date are two totally different things ,theres nothing wrong with using this for months after the best before date,store it on the right conditions and the flavour will last no problem

Please, let us know.



Protein powder does NOT go bad. I've done extensive research into this because I always ask the store for their expired or near expired protein. It's always at least half price so it's a good way to buy it. The only reason the have expiration dates is because the FDA and other regulatory bodies require a date to be put on (shelf life).

CAN YOU USE WHEY PAST ITS BEST BEFORE DATE

Powdered whey protein is not a perishable item, unlike milk for example, which spoils quickly and needs to be consumed within a certain time period before it is longer recommended to drink. Milk and other perishable items (meat and other dairy products) will be labelled with a ‘use before’ date to reflect the fact that they will ‘go off’ and no longer be suitable for consumption.

Best Before Dates are only a guideline

The best before on whey protein powder is simply a guideline of which the manufacturer guarantees the product will maintain its consistency, taste and nutrients. Past this date, whey may begin to lose some nutrients and have a less strong taste. How quickly this begins to happen will largely depend on how the powder is stored. If stored out of direct sunlight, away from moisture and in a cool environment most whey should last some months before it begins to spoil. Most whey powders have a long life due to the low moisture content.

“Use by” dates are typically found on dairy products, meat and fish, which spoil quickly and can cause illness if eaten after their “use by” dates. According to the FSA, it can be dangerous to eat food past the “use by” date even though the food might look and smell fine. It should be noted that instructions such as “consume within three days of opening” don’t mean that the products can be eaten for three days if they were opened on their “use by” date - this date should still be seen as the last date that they can be consumed safely.

“Best before” dates appear on foods that have a longer shelf life, such as biscuits, crisps and dried pulses. They indicate how long the food will be at its best quality for. Eating food past its “best before” date is unlikely to be harmful, unless it is eggs.

both... use it as a meal replacement and have a calorie deficit and you'll lose weight

use it before and/or after lifting weights and you'll gain muscle

Absolutely zero.

I'm not in any way affiliated, endorsed, linked or in anyway have a commercial or personal interest in the product.

In fact most maximuscle supplements are completely over priced and a waste of money - cheaper goods do the same.

BUT this item is a good price, will do what it says on the tin.

And all you retort with is "its bad for you" without a shred of data to back you up.

Typical keyboard warrior.

Its just powder. Its not going to go bad if left sealed even after a couple of months past its BBD.

B&M is also selling cheap MaxiMuscle protein drinks. These are in liquid form so I wouldn't risk it leaving it more than a few weeks after the BBD.

can't find a list of stores on their website, only new stores, was going to send son for some of this if there are any in Devon!

Just ignore the troll. They don't understand the onus is on them to back up a claim not ask others to disprove it.

On the other hand this isn't a bad price but I don't get products like these. There aren't enough calories for a meal replacement despite a large serving size and its full of sugers.

No it is in B&M because it is short dated. It is not short dated because it is in B&M ! The shop does not determine the dates! The dates determine the shop!

As long as it stays dry it'll be fine well after the date on the tub.

Yep, unfortunately even deydrated substrates grow mould. Mould is ubiquitous as we all know. Unless you keep your protein under nitrogen in a dessicator then its growing something.
Would you use infant formula beyond the best before date?

You are still saying nothing but conjecture so proof please that eating past best before is dangerous.. Best before is best before not use by because there will be mould or is dangerous to eat. With supplements in particular, best before means that the nutritional and vitamin content can no longer be guaranteed as well as the quality being possibly reduced.

You can buy past best before products from several places and they are quite popular due to the price. As such there hasn't been an endemic of food poisoning. We waste too much good food as it is in this country.

Are you suggesting a SEALED tub made in USP conditions (e.g. clean room) conditions will have microbes in it?

I wouldn't eat anything from suppliers who would allow microbes in before sealing. The whey is on the shelf for up to 2 years (the maximum best before put on tubs of whey) and so if it was going to go mouldy, it would.

TBH unless the whey contains fats (which can oxidise and go bad) or vitamins (which will lose potency) there is nothing to stop a sealed tub of whey lasting for year and years, in a cool dry place.

This product contains fats and vitamins. Also, I'm not sure why you think fats are more susceptible to oxidisation than amino acids.
Anyway, I would be wary with this product because the manufacturing is out-sourced to India or china. Five minutes googling will show you GSK's history with these lamentable outsourcing projects. Ranbaxy, who were supposedly GMP compliant have set a new low in failing to protect the consumer.
And, yes, microbial contamination can be all over clean rooms, just read the FDA 483s for some egregious examples- and these are in GMP facilities, which are light years ahead of USP clean rooms!
