When it starts smelling like poo then you got to worry.

The expiration date on most powders is waay too early, because the companies are forced to put an expiration date. Like stated above, only start worrying when it begins clumping inside the container, and smells bad

Yes it can. I found some protein in my kitchen that I forget about and it didn't mix right. It was very chalky and it tasted like poo. I drank it and it did not make me sick but the taste was terrible.  :-\

About 6 months old. My stomach was fine, but my taste buds were not.
