Storage Tips

Flaxseed oils are known for its high omega-3 fatty acids content. When the oil interacts with air, the chemical structure of the oil changes and breaks down to produce unpleasant odour and flavours, which we refer to as rancidity.  Unlike other cooking oils, Alligga™ flaxseed cooking oil, if unopened, is shelf stable in room temperature up to three years. Once opened, our oil has a shelf life of up to six months. To ensure your bottle of Alligga™ flaxseed oil stays fresh, we suggest you to:

  • Refrigerate after the bottle is opened
  • Make sure the container is tightly closed after each use
  • Store the oil in its original opaque container
  • Keep the bottle away from direct sunlight
