Is it safe to take your product if it has expired?
Expiry dates are dates determined by either stability study or estimates based on data that the product will meet label claim and not be harmful. If a product is past its expiration date, it is not necessarily likely to be harmful. It is, however, likely that the potency of the nutrients will be diminished and there is a chance of increased microbial contamination or breakdown by products. In the case of products that contain lipids there is a chance that oxidation has diminished the quality of the product and that it may contain rancid fats.
