Expiration & Storage Tips
When does Protein Cookies expire?
Protein cookies typically last until the 'best by' date printed on their packaging when unopened. Once opened, they can last about 1-2 weeks depending on their ingredients. Stored in the refrigerator, they should last for about 1 month. Freezing is not commonly done, but if you do, protein cookies can last up to 6 months in the freezer.
How do you tell if Protein Cookies is bad?
Identifying bad protein cookies isn't too tricky! Look for visible signs of mold or a 'funky' smell – a significant sign that your protein cookies may have expired. Another way to tell is if their texture has changed. If they've become unusually hard or dry, it might be time to throw them out. Lastly, if the cookies taste off or sour, they’ve likely gone bad.
Tips for storing Protein Cookies to extend shelf life
• Never leave your protein cookies exposed to air. Seal the package tightly after each use or transfer them to an airtight container.
• You can store your protein cookies in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
• Refrigerate your protein cookies if you don't plan on eating them within 2 weeks of purchase.
• If you want to make your protein cookies last longer, freeze them. Just remember to wrap them individually in wax paper to prevent them from sticking together and place inside a zip-top bag.
