Storage Suggestions :
Due to the high content of precious fragile EFAs, Hemp Seed Oil should never be used for frying or cooking, however it can be poured over pasta to give extra flavour. It may be used straight (1-2 tablespoons per day, or as directed by a doctor) or in place of all other vegetable oils i.e. salad dressings, sauces, marinades and low temperature cooking (below 25˚C).
Hemptons' organic Hemp Seed oil is cold-pressed at temperatures below 20˚ Celsius in an oxygen-free environment and nitrogen capped to maintain freshness.
Hemp Seed Oil requires cool and dark storage conditions - it is the very thing that makes Hemp Seed Oil such a valuable product that makes it vulnerable to spoilage - its high Essential Fatty Content content.
An opened container will last for ten- to twelve weeks in the refrigerator but should optimally be used within one- to two weeks.
An unopened container can be stored indefinitely in the deep freezer and one year in the refrigerator.
An unopened container can last four to six weeks if stored below temperatures of 25˚ Celsius and away from direct sunlight.
