Health From The Sun, Omega-3 Flax Oil, Natural Fresh Taste, 16 fl oz (473 ml)16 Reviews
Expiration Date: Nov 2015
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I found out that flaxseed oil is probably not the best for the body because it is ALA instead of DHA and EPA which are already converted, some people cannot convert ALA into DHA and EPA, which makes this oil dangerous for people who cannot convert it. I now only take fish oil regardless of the taste, flaxseed oil is overhyped and doesn't work. If you still insist to take flaxseed oil, this product is not bad, it tastes better than some others, at least I didn't have to hold my nose everytime.
In addition to its well known health benefits I use this product mainly because it was doctor recommended for dry eyes and it seems to help. It has a mild, pleasant flavor and aroma and I use it daily as salad oil. The dark packaging protects it from light (and rancidity) and the bottle cap flips open and closed, provides a thin steady stream and prevents dripping. I highly recommend this product.
