Great Product, but shipped already rancid
February 3, 2014
This product is great, and I was excited that pureformulas offered shipping in ice packs, as that is required, but most of online sellers don't do it.
The oil is really fresh only for two months from the date pressed, maybe three if kept refrigerated. After that it goes rancid and can really harm human body. I received the bottle, nicely wrapped in a box full of ice packs, and it was already 10 months old. Flax oil will absolutely not hold good for more that 2-3 months. The taste is supposed to be kind of nutty, sweet-ish, very pleasant. This was bitter and unedible, very unfortunately. SInce the shipping is 4 times more than the actual price of the oil, I won't take another chance of getting an expired bottle.
Pros:Good brand, great shipping method
Cons:Old product gone rancid, couldn't use it
