Unless you use it up really quickly, it might be more economical in the long run to get it in smaller bottles.
Sorry to butt in, just wanted to share.
Yes, you're right! I had been using the same bottle for more than a few months, and that is really bad. It tasted fine though. But still... bad. So now I split my flax seed oil between me and my horses and I will try to use it up within 30 days (I think that's what I read was recommended, that you use it within 30 days... correct me if I am wrong!)
Unfortuantely, doesn't Puritan Prides flax seed oil (liquid) only come in the 16 ounce bottles? Oh well... the horses like it!
Very good of you to mention that Windyhill, thank you.
It would be good to write the date on the cap of when you open it. I do this to alot of products (food).
