Roman B How you prevent oxidation of the omega 3 in liquid form? How long last the bottle after opening?

Vegetology D What does it taste like?
Vegetology If you have tasted Olive Oil, that is the main way to describe it. The Algal Omega-3 EPA & DHA does have a 'marine' taste, which we've limited by manufacturing in a controlled way and adding a hint of Orange oil to mask the marine taste. We've mixed our Algal Omega-3 EPA & DHA into Olive Oil, as Olive helps to protect and keep it fresh. Olive Oil can cause some people to have a slight and temporary burning sensation in the throat, but this is perfectly normal.
