Grout Shelf Life?

Does unused grout have a shelf life? I have grout left over from tiling my tub surround 4 years ago. It's been kept in the original carton inside the house since then. Now I'm retiling the floor in the same bathroom and the grout is the right color and type. Is there any reason I can't use it? Does grout go bad?

It's one year i think.I'd say that grout has drawn moisture and is chemically dead, better get new.
