By Nutiva116 Reviews
Expiration Date: Dec 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.

Trust Nutiva for the freshest, best-tasting products. Enjoy our delicious, unrefined, cold-pressed, certified-organic Canadian hemp oil. Hemp has Omega-3–the "good fat" doctors recommend for optimal health.
Hemp oil has nature's ideal 3:1 Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratio. Unlike flax, hemp has valuable Super Omega-3 (SDA) and Super Omega-6 (GLA), which can help our bodies metabolize fat.
Use 1-2 tablespoons daily in smoothies, salads, vegetables, and pasta dishes.
To conserve the EFAs, don't fry with hemp oil.
Italian Hemp Dressing:
- 2 parts Hemp Oil
- 2 parts olive oil
- 2 parts vinegar
Shake with herbs and add Nutiva Hempseed for zesty flavor.
Raw, organic, unrefined hempseed oil.

iHerb Customer Reviews
I bought this to use directly on my skin as I have rosacea, it works wonderfully. A little greasy for daytime, but if I use at night I wake up with my skin much nicer. I'm sure it would be delicious as well :)
The Nutiva product is very good - an organic product in an opaque quality bottle that does not drip. It can be hard to get the product out of the bottle due to the no-drip features - takes me two hands to squeeze before any oil comes out, but then the flow is manageable. The one thing you should be aware of is that despite the claim of light, nutty flavor, hemp oil "solo" is a tough taste to acquire. There is an intial "nutty" taste up front but then a bitter, very grassy lingering flavor at the end. Personally I won't put it in smoothies etc. because I don't want to make my whole meal taste "off." Better to just squeeze it in to the appropriate size teaspoon, hold your breath, say "cheers" and then down it, perhaps with a nice lemon water chaser. :-) I give this product 5 stars for quality but dock it 1 star for the rather misleading packaging verbiage regarding the flavor.
