Is it very important that Flameout is refrigerated?
I take at least 1 serving per day, so no individual bottle is open for more than 22 days after first opening.[/quote]
It’s mostly to a safeguard against the oils going bad. If you’re really running through the bottle that quickly, I’d say you Should (capital “S” with an asterisk “should”) be okay as long as it’s kept cool and out of light, like in a cabinet or drawer or something.
But for 100% safety and freshness, a fridge is ideal, just like with butter, eggs, milk, cold cuts, etc. because fish oil is… fish… oil.
You probably don’t have access to a freezer either, then? Some people just keep Flameout in the freezer, which also helps cut down on fish-burps too.
