Soil Conditioner query.

Hi, I've just opened a bag of soil conditioner that I've had in the shed for about a year and there's white stuff all over it and in it. Does anyone have any idea of what this could be and also do you think that I should ditch, rather than use, this on my veggie patch. Many thanks.

It's fine, it looks to be mycelium which is present in healthy soils anyway.
Just fluff it up with a fork and it'll be perfect!

Probably Micorrhizae, a beneficial fungus that lives naturally in soil

Many thanks to you both for your responses. The soil conditioner has been spread out and seems to look a bit better now especially as we've had quite a bit of rain over the last few days.
