Using out of date powders.

I have some oats and flavoured whey that's got a BBE of July 2014.
 
Now working in the food industry I know about use by/best before and how long things actually last.
 
I'm quite happy to use this stuff as it's only dry powder, unless anyone can tell me from experience that I'd be better dumping it and getting some fresh?

should be fine, provided it's been kept in an airtight container and isn't showing any signs of moisture spoilage.
 
best before end date is not 'poisonous after' date

Just smell it , If it smells and looks fine go for it.

^^^This:
If its still dry then as above you will be fine mate.
I use whey protein that is years past the BBE.
If its sealed and kept dry and cool it keeps for years.
Other powders that are more hygroscopic like Creatine will degrade more quickly and if they have clumped its best to disgard them.

Whey stinks when it goes bad, like sour baby formula.

dry sealed powder in a foil pouch will last years and years, will not go off, will eventually lose some nutritional value.

I think there is a big difference between previously unopened stuff that is just past the sell by date and stuff that has been open for ages. That might seem obvious to many but I think it is worth stating.
