Should I refrigerate my olive oil?

It isn’t recommended. Most extra virgin olive oils become cloudy and thick under refrigeration. And, as with wine, extended refrigeration can result in diminished aromas and muted flavors, even after the olive oil is returned to room temperature. This idea would come as a surprise to the ancient Greeks and Romans who traded olive oil throughout the Mediterranean centuries before the age of refrigeration. If properly stored out of the sun and heat, Little Angel Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil® should last 18 months to 2 years. So, use it and enjoy it but protect it, as well.
