protein is protein

Yes it is! If stored in dry place.

Yes. In fact, it will still be good 5 years from now. The expiration dates on protein powders are notoriously over-cautious.

It’s probably OK if you assume 75% availability and set your dosages accordingly.

The company just doesn’t guarantee that the amounts on the nutrition facts panel is what you are going to get anymore. There is a diminishing effect of the vitamin/miner profile. Plus the sensory profile (Taste and Odor) will not be as good.

Taste it! Does it still taste okay? Give it a go! If not, throw it out!
