    Hi all,

    Another question...

    Does anyone know why water flavouring only has a shelf life of 6 weeks once it has been opened (as per the label)?

    I have some and the amount I use of it (approx half a teaspoon every other day) means that by the end of 6 weeks, I still have around half the tub left. As its not cheap, I don't want to buy a new tub if its not absolutely necessary, simply because the 6-week timescale has elapsed.

    Bloomin' credit crunch.... ;)

    Sorr, I was not aware of this- I had a couple of flavours on the go for a while and they seemed ok. Can't really see what could go off......

    Hmmm, me too. Was wondering what would go "off" too. Maybe the flavour wears off?

    It is 6 weeks, but the flavour just fades. It won't harm you, as long as you've always used a clean spoon;)

    Thanks all for your thoughts, and to you Lesly for the definitive answer about the flavouring. Mystery solved. I will live if I use it, but my water might not taste so strong! I must admit, my tub of Berry stuff has begun to taste slightly less Berry-ish and a touch more bleachy.

    I think I blame Southern Water for that - mind you, I do filter it.

    Cheers,
    Justin

    Could anyone let me know the reason for not having the favouring early -on?
    Thanks!

    Think its the same as the bars you need to be in established ketosis before you can have them,think I read somewhere that they can knock some people out of keto.
