North American Herb & Spice Co., Raw BetaPalm, African Red Palm Oil, 8 fl oz (240 ml)6 Reviews
Expiration Date: Feb 2016
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
The first red palm oil I bought locally (different brand) and it was okay. I kept it in a drawer as it said to keep it away from light. This one I've only had open for about two weeks in the same drawer and it seems to have black mold on it. I looked at the label to see if I should have refrigerated it, but it doesn't say that anywhere. I don't think I'll be buying this one again. It also has a more grainy and dry texture than the first brand I bought.
The oil is great quality, but the jar is a little small. It can get a little expensive taking one tsp everyday buying this size of container.
