Shelf Life of Activated Carbon?

Could anyone tell me if I can still use a carton on AMMO-CARD (by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals) activated carbon and ammonia-removing resin that I have found in a storage container?
The unopened carton is ten years old and has not been opened. I hope I can use this as it will help me save a little more $.

Thanks!

when the carbon bits finally turns into little Diamonds, then it won't be of any use in your filter

spypet, you bet me to the punch line: LOL

But seriously, the only thing that I wonder about is the ammonia-removing resin, I don't know what it is made out of.
