PAMELA D. aPROpos of nothing is looking for: (1 recommendation)
Ground flax meal. How long does it last? Supposed to go rancid fairly quickly, right? Does it smell off like when other oils go bad. I can smell rancid no problem. I found some ground flax at the bottom of the bin that I know has been there a LONG time. Smelled it and it smells fine, tastes fine. So is it fine?

I have no idea, but threw out a bottle of corn oil the other day because it smelled rancid. It was new too, so if it is supposed to smell that way, yuck!

Livestrong says ground can last 2 years (this stuff was probably 6 months but not refrigerated) which differs greatly from other sites. I tossed and will replace, taste the new stuff and compare.

PAMELA D,if you keep your flax in the freezer,it will last about 1 year.Keep mine that way,never had a problem.
