    [​IMG] OUT OF DATE STOCK
    On a previous post I mentioned my concerns of the skimmed milk becoming rancid in the packs. It is the fat that becomes rancid not the skimmed milk. The discussion I had on this was over 3 years ago and for once my memory let me down.

    I have just had a discussion with the head of production and clarified the issue.

    Official Guidance - what happens after best before date

    Powders

    The vitamins and minerals start to deteriorate.
    The flavour changes and will start to taste stale.
    The fats, essential fats are added, sunflower oil is added, and the soya flour contains fat these are the elements that become rancid.

    Tetras

    These become thick and all of the above apply.

    Bars

    Bars harden and as they have the fats added the rancid problem again arises along with the reduction in vitamins and minerals.

    So advice from CD Head Office use the packs before the best before date

    If this is your sole source of nutrition I would not recommend you use the packs.
