Does expired whey protein powder safe and still effective past expiration?

Options
I found a 2 pound can of GNC whey protein powder buried in the back corner of my top pantry shelf. The safety seal is broken as I used it a couple times before forgetting about it. It expired In June. I had a scoop of it this evening and it tastes just fine, but now I'm wondering if it's still safe and effective nearly 5 months past expiration?

    Protein powder often contains some kind of milk powder or something similar, these ingredients can go off so you could get sick if you drink it, not sure about the protein though.

    Also I keep my protein powder on my bench top and have a shake everyday. I don't forget because it is there in front of my face. :smile:
