Organic sesame seeds are expeller pressed to create delicious, unrefined oil. Used for centuries in Asian cultures, this golden oil adds a mild sesame flavor to any dish.
Unrefined Sesame Oil contains antioxidants, including sesamol and sesamin, and vitamin E, and is high in omega 6 and 9.
Expeller pressing is a mechanical method for extracting oil. The seed is squeezed under high pressure in a single step. Unrefined oils are filtered only lightly to remove large particles. The flavor, color and fragrance of unrefined oils are more pronounced than in refined oils; they are more nutritious and have a shorter storage life than refined.
Unrefined Sesame Oil is used for medium heat cooking with a smoke point of 320-356 F°. Ideal for salad dressing, sauces, marinades, sautéing, and in baking; or pour over steamed vegetables, fish, grains, potatoes, or popcorn. Serve with dark green leafy vegetables to help with absorption of vitamins and minerals. Also great as a massage oil!
