Chickpea and soy flour

I discovered a container of chickpea flour and one of soy flour at the very back of my pantry where they were out of sight, out of mind until I did some spring-cleaning today. :\ I don't know how long they were there - I have to assume the flour is between one and two years old.

Both containers are air tight and the flours look and smell fine, but... I'm just not sure if they're still okay to use. Does anyone know the lifespan of chickpea and soy flour? Do they go rancid, or otherwise bad? Googling has given me conflicting results. Thanks in advance!

If it matters, I only use these two kinds of flour for breadmaking.
