Codliver Oil, does it freeze?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I know oil doesn't freeze per say...

But I purchased some Green Pastures Fermented Cod Liver Oil. Just before we moved, the roommate accidentally dropped and busted the bottle before I really got to use it regularly.

It's winter and things freeze in our climate. I just don't want my new order to be destroyed/denatured before it arrives.

Should I wait until spring to order again?

Rinji, even if it freezes oils don't increase their size when frozen like water does so the bottle shouldn't bust. I've frozen CLO in the freezer before with no problem.

Thanks! I just didn't know if the other components in it would freeze and bust the bottle in the mail box. I'm assuming it will end up like a slurry? I forgot to mention that this is fermented fish oil.

It will freeze a little, but that is not a problem, in fact it is often used as a way to extend shelf life and reduce the fishy flavor.

So don't worry about it.
