There is someone selling High Lignan flax Oil on Ebay in one gallon containers for a great price, but how fast can I use a gallon, really? I was wondering if it's okay to maybe put what I'll use pretty quickly in another bottle and freeze the rest. I asked in natural foods but didn't get a reply. maybe someone here knows? Thanks.
I have not done this myself, but I have read that you can freeze FSO, however they advised to not keep in frozen stage longer than four months. Don't know if this really constitutes a savings for you in the long run.
I just ordered 3 bottles (32 ounces each. Seller suggestion is to freez it. I have 2in frezzer and one in the refrigerator. My naturophatic friend suggested me this web site: http://naturesdistributors.com/store/3112info.html
It is a lot cheaper than what I was paying. After $30.00 purchase, you do not pay shipping. Check it out. I hope this helps.
I wonder how fresh it is. That seller selling the gallons on Ebay sells it fresh apparently dated. I haven't bid yet but I emailed the seller and he seemed really helpful. He seemed very adamate that freshness is important and proud that they sell it so fresh. I think I might bid, since you can freeze it. Maybe I'll put a half gallon in my deep freeze, a quart in my regular freezer and the rest in the fridge.
Do any of you know a good source of dried stinging nettle? I can't find any for even close to a reasonable price. It's a weed!
The one that I bought, it has an expiration date of december 2003. It does look fresh to me. I followed their instructions to make sure it does not go rancid. I am very sure I will order before december.
Let us know if you buy it at e-bay and if you feel satisfy. The name of the seller would be a plus.
I would hesitate to buy such a quantity of flaxseed oil. In his book "Fats that Heal, Fats that Kill", Erasmus says that flaxseed oil can be kept frozen solid in a freezer "where it will remain fresh for over one year" (p.304). That is valid for unopenned bottles only.
BUT, he also says that if that oil was not pressed in a dark, oxygenless and cold place and if that conditions are not preserved during the delivery from the oil-maker to your table, freezing your oil will just slown the deteriorating process of an already doubtful quality oil.
