    Default what SHOULD flax seed oil taste like?

    I have been trying to take this stuff but it tastes horrific. It's
    really bitter and smells like freshly mowed lawn grass. It reminds me
    of the that thick cough syrup crap only worse. Someone told me that
    it might be rancid and I need to buy it from somewhere else (I bought
    mine at GNC) that has it in the fridge. If I do this, how should the
    stuff taste? Is it still going to taste pretty nasty?

    Learn to use flaxseed in your cooking then it eliminates the need for
    taking the oil directly, also consider just eating the fish instead of
    doing supplements to get the nutrients that you desire.

    Forget flax seed oil. Take fish oil instead, it is much better for you.

    shouldn't you avoid fish as much as possible, seeing as most of it is highly
    contaminated with mercury?

    No. Avoid tertiary carnivorous fish (like shark) if you are
    mercury-paranoid.

    Flax seed oil should not be cooked with or heated directly. It may be
    used on top of already cooked foods.

    It should taste fairly plain, slightly nutty in flavor. I don't love
    it, but I don't mind it. If it is bitter tasting, it may be rancid.
    Make sure you purchase it refrigerated and keep it cold!

    Fish oil is great, but make sure to get enteric coated caps to avoid
    the dreaded fish burps. Flax works well mixed in shakes to add a nice
    consistency and mouth feel.
