There is a fear of whether it is Safe to consume dietary Supplements after their expiration date. But what is the precise expiration date of Nutritional Supplements, and how can they protect consumers and ensure their health?
- Expiration dates
- Rules for proper storage of food Supplements
An expiration date on a dietary supplement, in contrast with food expiration dates, indicates the last day/month the manufacturer can guarantee the maximum potency of its Nutrients. Expiry dates on food Nutrients gradually degrade from the first day of production, and consuming accessories after the expiration date does not pose any health problems for consumers. If a product has reached its end date, it does not mean it's no longer suitable and Safe.
According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), manufacturers are not obliged to have expiry dates on food Supplements. However, quality manufacturers voluntarily list expiration dates to benefit them. Suppose manufacturers do not have expiration dates on their products. In that case, it is their responsibility to ensure the maximum action of their Supplements, as Supplements have expiration dates.
Rules for proper storage of food Supplements
For an expiry date to be valid, consumers should comply with the rules of proper use and storage of food Supplements. Most Supplements and medicines should not be used for more than 12 months after the pack's opening, regardless of the expiration date, as they have been exposed to external factors such as high temperature and humidity.
