I opened up an old bottle of olive oil today and took a swig. It tasted pretty bad, I'm pretty sure it's gone rancid. If I don't really mind the taste, is there any harm in having it? Does it's nutrition change at all?

I found this answer in google. I dont know myself:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would stop using it. You could get sick! It has a lifespan of about a year or two, after it gets that smell, THROW IT OUT! It's kind of like drinking soured milk, you might not get sick but why take the chance?

A good tip I found was keeping it in the refrigerator. When I want to use it I just set it near the stove as I am cooking and it melts. Simple! I also make sure to buy the smallest container I can find because I don't use it often.

As far as it being good for anything, NO, unless you have a squeaky door that needs oiling and even then a spray of WD40 is probably more effective then olive oil. It also makes a great hair conditioner but you want to use fresh otherwise your hair will smell like rotten oil. So yeah, it's probably good for the garbage can! In a few weeks it will STINK too much to be good for anything!

I have had this happen before. I KNOW it's annoying. It's best just to toss it. It could make you sick or ruin your food. And yes IT CAN make you really sick if it's old enough!

So I guess its not that good

Yeah, I actually saw that, but it was all I could find on google. Not necessarily a credible source. But thanks!

Dude, it's a bottle of Olive Oil, go get another. Jeez, I can't believe you think it's rancid and are even considering using it.
