Freezing protein powder is easy!

Although protein powder has a long shelf life, it will become rancid eventually. If you have a container of protein powder that you want to keep, but do not anticipate using anytime soon, you can freeze it.

The colder and darker the storage environment, the better protein powder will keep. Freezer storage is therefore ideal. For the best results, place flour as far away from the freezer door as possible. This will prevent incidental light and warmth exposure.

How to freeze protein powder?

Freezing protein powder is simple. All you have to do is put the powder in an airtight container and place the container in the freezer. A large, sealable plastic bag or a snap-top plastic container will do the trick if the original packaging is damaged. Using an airtight container is important because protein powder exposed to moisture will spoil. An airtight container helps prevent the protein powder from absorbing flavors and odors from surrounding foods.

If you are storing your protein powder in a bag, try to remove as much of the air from the bag as possible before freezing. Doing so will extend your shelf life even further. Moreover, do not combine new and old containers of protein powder before freezing. This shortens the shelf life of the newer protein powder.

You can expect to extend the shelf life of your protein powder by at least six months by storing it in the freezer. I have frozen protein powder for over two years with no issues whatsoever.

How to unfreeze protein powder?

Defrosting protein powder is easy. When stored properly, frozen protein powder can be scooped right out of the freezer. If you plan on refreezing the protein powder after using some, do so immediately to prevent condensation.
