Our products are made from cold processed powders with moisture removed, so they are generally safe to consume when kept in or out of the refrigerator. We recommend keeping them refrigerated after opening in order to ensure optimal nutrient density over time. 

If you want to take your open jar with you on a trip or forgot to put it back in the fridge before you went to work - don't sweat it! In most cases, a few hours out of the refrigerator is perfectly fine and should not have a significant effect on the nutrient content.
