Can fish oil go rancid?
A. Fish oil can become rancid if it is not used in a timely fashion. Omega-3 Brain Booster™ has been shelf-life tested to be sure it is safe to keep in its original, unopened packaging at room temperature for up to 12 months. Our microencapsulation process helps extend the shelf life by creating an oxygen-protective coating around the fish oil. In addition, each bag of Omega-3 Brain Booster™ is purged with nitrogen to remove oxygen, stop oxidation, and maximize shelf life and stability. After the package is opened, it should be refrigerated and used within 60 days.
