Do protein balls need to be refrigerated? 
No protein balls do not need to be refrigerated but they do taste better when they're slightly chilled. Storing in an airtight container in the fridge is the best way to preserve freshness and the delicious flavors!
How long will protein balls last in the fridge? 
When stored properly, protein balls will last 1-2 weeks in the fridge. Make sure you store in an airtight container. If you choose to freeze them, they'll last around 30 days.
