The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Pro-Optimal Whey: Highest Quality Ingredients and Formulation
When used with a balanced whole foods diet, Pro-Optimal Whey is designed to help promote an optimal intake of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals needed for overall wellness. Pro-Optimal Whey is made with Proserum, native whey protein concentrate. It maintains the full range of the fragile immune-boosting and regenerative components naturally present in fresh raw milk. It is produced using proprietary filtration and drying which involves minimal processing. This unique production method ensures that the whey is not subjected to temperatures that would destroy the original components. We do not use cross-flow filtration, microfiltration, hydrolyzation or ion exchange methods which denature the original proteins which come from herds that graze year-round on disease-free, pesticide-free, chemical-free, natural grass pastures. Milk from grass-fed cows has many times higher levels of CLA and contains a proper balance of essential fatty acids. The milking cows are never fed grain or subjected to any growth hormone treatment, chemicals, antibiotics, genetically modified organisms, hyperimmunization or injected pathogens. The result is the highest quality protein formulation available.
Better than Soy
Whey protein is nature's richest source of biologically active protein. Unlike soy protein, which is low in the amino acid methionine, whey protein contains all the amino acids the body needs in the best balance yet discovered in any food.
Whey protein is derived from milk. We have added the proprietary full spectrum enzyme blend n-zymes which contains lactase and proteases. This blend was added to aid in digestion of the small amount of lactose present and to assist in the breakdown and assimilation of the various high quality proteins found in milk.
Mix one scoop (30 grams) in eight ounces of water or any other beverage per day, or as directed by your health care practitioner. Pro-Optimal Whey may be blended into a shake if desired. Pro-Optimal Whey is not intended to be the sole source of calories, but used as part of an overall program of healthy eating. Ingest on an empty stomach and do not eat for 30 minutes afterward. If you experience intestinal discomfort consuming this product, slowly add the recommended serving size to your daily intake until one scoop is easily tolerated.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I`ll give you 100 % recommendation. Order it!
I may not agree with everything Dr Mercola says, but his products are one of the best and most pure with the highest ingredients. This tastes very good on its own and is digested rather quickly. I think the chocolate is a bit too sweet, but maybe because my diet is sugar/sweetener free for years I notice it more. Highly recommended as the best whey source.
