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.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Solgar's Organic Flaxseed Oil provides one of the most concentrated vegan plant sources of Omega 3 Fatty Acids found in nature. Our formula also provides Oleic Acid, and Omega 9 Fatty Acid. Fatty Acids play a role in providing an energy source for the body and support heart, skin, and nerve health.
Through a unique cold processing method, the flaxseeds are pressed at very cold temperatures and are processed without solvents. Our oil is filled under nitrogen blanket to safeguard it from oxygen exposure. It is packaged in a climate controlled atmosphere under yellow lights to ensure the highest level of freshness and potency. Solgar's signature amber glass bottle minimizes light exposure to maintain freshness, efficacy and potency.

iHerb Customer Reviews
This oil can only be termed LITE. It lacks the deep rich color of flax oil, has little taste, but it does have a glass bottle and a beautiful Lable. Very disappointed. Will not buy again and will stick with Flolra brand. ADDENDUM - it is so bad that after 6 tablespoons I threw it in the dustbin.
I use it for its omega3 content and for controlling my scalp psoriasis. Works well. Has a pleasant taste compared to other flaxseed oils I've tried, but doesn't really taste like a treat ;) I use a tablespoon every day, usually in my smoothie. Then you can't taste it at all! Blend 1 banana, some milk or yoghurt, some protein powder, heaps of frozen raspberries and/or strawberries, 1 tbsp flaxseed oil and 1 tbsp soy lecithin (as an emulsifier) and you have a simple, tasty and creamy meal! :) The only problem I have with this is the bottle, the oil always drips on the outside of the bottle, making my fridge greasy. I have to store it inside a plastic bag.
