I just have a whole bunch of questions:<br><br>
I know most of it is supposed to be kept in the fridge after it's opened...but I'm guessing that means it has a limited pre-opening shelf life too, right? Does anyone know how long it is? As in, if I find a good sale, can I get a bunch and use it over the next 6+ months? Could I freeze some? (I'm particularly thinking of gummies for my kids--I found an amazing sale but shipping here to Alaska is nuts so I want to make a big order...but I don't want it to go rancid!)<br><br>
What is the point of fermented CLO as opposed to regular? I know WAPF says to get fermented...does that extend the shelf life?<br><br>
What brands do you love/hate? And why? I have a very sensitive gag reflex, and I don't really like fish...so I can't swallow huge capsules, but I don't like a fishy flavored liquid either.<br>
I want high-vitamin for my kids (because they are taking it primarily for the vitamin D), but i want regular for myself, because I need the omega3s as well as the vitamin D. (We all need D because of living in Alaska, but I have other health things that have me needing the oils.)<br>
Blue Ice is recommended by WAPF, and their gummies are the ones that I found on sale--can anyone tell me what those taste like? As in, I don't want to buy 6 bottles only to discover that my kids hate them <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

i'll tell you about the gummies since i just bought three jars to get to the 12 item price break.<br><br>
my kids hate them.<br><br>
they totally taste like a cinnamon cod liver gummy and it's fine for me since i _know_ i'm supposed to take them but neither of my kids (who _will_ take the clo with a juice chaser) will touch them.<br><br>
it's fine because it's easier for me than shooting the oil but i'd only buy them if you are willing to use them for yourself.<br><br>
also, shelf life, is usually two years until opened. we've had a bottle in the fridge opened over the summer (so three months?) because we don't need it as much in the summer and i never noticed a difference in taste or texture. i think they're safe in the fridge opened for at least six months.<br><br>
if i were you, i'd see if you could find anyone else that's interested to split the 12 item minimum with. when i added the three things of gummies the discount on the rest of the stuff was almost equal to the cost of the gummies. so, for three containers of gummies i only had to pay an additional $10 i think? well worth it.

Should I refrigerate the Green Pastures CLO/BO mix? I bought it a little over a year and a half ago and have never refrigerated it.

THANK YOU for that. I wasn't finding any feedback about what flavor they were, but my kids arent big on cinnamon and I hate it, so we will definitely go a different route there--no price is good enough if we wont use them!<br><br>
