Protein from a pouch or tub?

Hi,
  I've just had a delivery of two pouches of whey from BBW, first impressions are good, mixes well and tastes good.
My question is should I transfer the protein into empty tubs I have from previous proteins or keep them in the pouches, the reason I ask is purely for keeping it freshest not for convenience etc, or does it not matter?
Many thanks

    My initial thoughts are so that it saves on packaging. I would be tempted to transfer as i always drop things and if the pouch wasn't done up it could be messsy!!

    But if you make sure its sealed properly then either/or is fine.

    If you reseal the pouch correctly - no issues - the issue is resealing it correctly!

    I kind of like pouches but do agree that transfer into a tub is not a bad idea.

    I find the pouches easier, they stand upright, easier and less space to store!

    Some pouches are fine (eg Reflex pouches, really well developed) some are just poor!

    I use Myprotein and like the pouches, easy to get into and reseal and as you use more powder they take up less space, ideal!

    Yes the myprotein ones are good as they stand upright, no need to transfer those into tubs in my opinion. Some are just wobbly bags and difficult ziplocks!!

    Glad you like the Premium Whey!
     
    Some people find it more convenient to transfer into tubs, however the new pouches are pretty solid even if you decided to leave it in there to save space - they should easily last (and seal) longer than the 3kg's will last you. Hope that helps! :)
