Expired Supplements

Hi everyone just a quick question. I usually dont buy Cell Tech but found a 7lb. jug of it at GNC for six dollars. The problem is that it expired in Feburary.

Is creatine based products or protein powders still effective after the expiration date? I also picked up two, 2.2lb of the cell tech for 3 dollars. Thanks alot for you help sorry if this is a stupid question. thanks

Though I’m not 100% sure on cell tech etc, but usually most protein powders are good at least 6 months after their expiration dates. I know some supp. companies to make it standard for their stuff to hold up almost 2 years after the alotted exp. date.
