Flax Seed Oil

Does anyone know for sure if flax seed oil in the liquid form must be refrigerated even before it's opened? I've always purchased mine in the refrigerated section at the store, but I was just wondering if it is a necessity. TIA!

Re: Flax Seed Oil

Most of them do not need refrigeration. It may be a particular brand that requires it. All have always purchased mine in the vitamin, unrefrigerated, section.

Re: Flax Seed Oil

I always keep my bottles of the oil in the fridge since that's where it came from when I bought it. It must be kept refridgerated after it's opened too.

Flax seed oil can go rancid pretty easily too, and is only good for 3 months after it has been opened. If it has gone bad it smells kinda funky!

HTH!

Re: Flax Seed Oil

Before opening it can be shelved and after opening always refridgerate it. OH, don't cook with it either

Re: Flax Seed Oil

Sorry to hi-jack but what are the health benefits of flax seeds and flax seed oil? Is it iron?

High protein

It's also wonderful for woman's sexual health, (meaning sexual organs ) and hormones.
