Sealed Flax Seed Oil Bottles

I bought refrigerated oil for a long time. Recently, I started purchasing bottled oil from Trader Joe's (US). Trader Joe's is famous for high quality products and it seems to me there are several ways of delivering oil.

1) Opaque packaging, constant refrigeration (gold standard)
2) Capsules (not refrigerated, but sealed)
3) Opaque packaging, sealed bottle
4) Non-sealed bottle sitting on a shelf(worst type)

My logic is that if you can eat canned sardines with EVO inside or eat EVO or indeed Flax Seed Oil capsules, it must be the case that it can be sealed properly. Also, the taste is not rancid at all. After I open it, I keep it refrigerated. The advantage is that it's 1/2 the price of the fresh oil. I feel it's analogous to the fresh vs frozen in vegetables. The oil contains lignans.
