Do I have a bad bottle of fish oil?

Recommended Posts

I posted this in the fish oil thread but no one hasn't answered it yet, I need to know before I take them. I bought a bottle of fish oil and the I dunno if the batch is bad or not. The pills are hard and the top layer is kinda shedding, this is actually the second bottle. I took the first one back yesterday, exchange it and the second bottle is the same way. I don't want to go back if there isn't anything wrong but I wanted to make sure.

The only way I know of to test fish oil is to just empty out a capsule onto your mouth. If it's rancid, you will know.

In the meantime, put the bottle in the refrigerator or the freezer. This prevents oxidation and rancidity, and will lengthen the shelf life quite a bit.
