Unopened cooking oil should be stored in atightlysealed container, and kept in a cool, dark place.Freezingcooking oil to extend its shelf life is notrecommended.Freezing will not extend the shelf life, andwill onlyserve to speed up the spoiling process once theoilthaws.
Similarly, does used cooking oil need to be refrigerated? Store the used oil in a sealed andlight-proofcontainer for up to 3 months. For best quality,refrigerateused frying oil that you want to useagain. If theoil is clouded or if the oil starts tofoam or has afoul odor, taste, or smell, discard it. Thus,do not disposethe oil near lakes, streams, orwatersheds.
Then, what is the freezing point of vegetable oil?
Vegetable oil contains a mixture ofmolecules,with different shapes which makes it hard for theoil tocreate crystals and solidify as ice for example. Butcooling downthe oil will make it more viscous. I would saythatvegetable oil freezing point is around 0degreesCelsius.
