I'm wondering what the recommended shelf life is of Fish oil before it oxidizes or whatever is the proper way to describe it. Meaning how quickly should use use Fish oil you buy if it's:
1. capsules in Fridge
2. capsules in Freezer
3 Liquid fish oil in Fridge
Thanks
Hollis

Hollis-

Keeping the capsules in the freezer dramatically extend the shelf life. Most reactions decrease in rate by ~1/2 for every 10*C decrease in temperature. I am not sure if this applies to free radical reactions as in fish oil but I suspect it is pretty representative.

Hi Robb, thanks for replying. Just so I have some benchmark to go off, if you personally were to buy a bottle of fish pills and keep it in the freezer, How many days would have to go by for you to not want to use them anymore and buy new ones?
