UMP Protein Powder has a long shelf life. UMP Powder is good for 24 months from date of manufacturing when unopened. The date is clearly marked on each package with Best By Date.  Beyond the best before date it’s less about safety and more about quality, in terms of nutrition and taste. There will be minor degradation of some of the vitamins and minerals and a small risk of spoilage. 

Does UMP make you fart?

Well, any foods can have that effect, but fiber is normally the main culprit of gaseous emissions. UMP contains a small amount of fiber, and for most people should not cause any excess "bodily exhaust". If you’re suffering, examine your entire diet for fibrous overflow. That may be causing your gas.   

Will UMP make me bulky?

The notion that protein powders make you bulky is categorically untrue. The only thing that can make you ‘bulky’ is an excess of calories combined with a strict and intense weightlifting routine. Protein powder by itself does not make you bulky, just as weightlifting by itself does not turn anyone into the Hulk overnite!

So, especially ladies, please, keep enjoying your UMP Protein: It will help in keeping you full, maintain your lean muscle tissue, and, when combined with a healthy diet, sufficient sleep, and well-designed exercise program, UMP will help you feel and perform your absolute best.
