Tips

  • Keep in cool, dark place.
  • Refrigeration is recommended in hot, humid conditions.
  • Storage time shown is for best quality only - after that, the oil's texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, it will still be safe to consume if it has been stored properly.
  • To determine if oil is still suitable for use, smell and taste it: If the oil has developed an off odor, flavor or appearance, it should be discarded for quality purposes.
  • ? Best By, ? Best if Used By, and ? Use By dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality - in most cases, the oil will still be safe to consume after that date, as long as it has been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
