I recently bought some organic certified extra virgin olive oil from Tunisia. However
- It is a cheap brand (only $10 a litre)
- The manufacturing date is Dec 2012 so its over a year old
- It is packaged in a heavy, dark green, glass bottle and states it is best before 36 months from date of manufacture
- It is extra virgin and organic certified by EcoCert
- It tastes extremely bitter (almost as bitter as bitter-melon - if you've ever tried it )
Has the oil gone rancid? Should I throw it out?
