Do additives and flavourings have a shelf life, or is it a case of keep refrigerated once opened?

Some do for sure.

All the PikePro oils i use lose their smell from one winter to the next once opened, the fishyness is gone and it has that old paintbrush smell. Same thing happened with a bottle of hemp oil i bought, i'm sure it had been opened previously in the shop because it had the paintbrush smell too. Smelt nothing like the supermarket hemp oil.

On the other hand i have some sonubaits spicy sausage and luncheon meat goo type stuff, had them a couple years and still smell the same. Same goes for bottles of Korda Goo i have.

I don't imagine it would hurt to put them in the fridge once opened, just let them get back to room temperature before trying to squeeze them out the bottle :D

Haven’t noticed anything on the packaging of stuff like Lava & Haze to say “use within....” but I guess they would probably lose some degree of smell over time or congeal if just left in a seatbox.

I've had a plastic squirty bottle of Liquid Worm for about 18 months now and it's still liquid, not congealed, and quite potent.
