Like wine look on the label for the crush date. By the time oil gets to North America it is usually at least half a year old. Don't bother buying anything over two years old, and if it does not have a date then you are getting second grade oil. OK to use for dishes where oil taste does not matter but if you want s good oil taste spend the extra buck and buy the good stuff. You will notice the difference.
