  1. Hi JoAnn – thanks for listening. Dates and best befores are always at the discretion of the user and not something we typically comment on. Hope you’re doing OK!

  2. Do you have a time table that you tell clients on how long to keep oils, vinegars, and sauces? I understand it has an expiration date on the items, but is there a time frame once opened? I love the tip to write the open date on the bottle, something so simple.

    1. Hi Stacy, we don't get involved with anything to do with dates as it's so variable product by product and country by country but the first step is definitely writing those dates on the bottle. Thanks for listening!

  3. I enjoyed your podcast, as always, but I'm surprised you didn't discuss how heat can affect oils. I thought heat (e.g., storing near a stove) would increase the speed at which an oil will go rancid. I was hoping to hear how long various oils remain "healthy," as I so often cannot find a "use by" date on the bottle (perhaps it's worn off by the time I think to check it). I have vegetable oil, olive oil, and sesame oil. They probably all need replacement as it takes me a couple of years or longer to use an entire bottle.
