Organic sesame seeds are expeller pressed to create delicious, unrefined oil. Used for centuries in Asian cultures, this dark golden oil adds a sesame flavor to any dish. Primarily used for seasoning, a little goes a long way with this oil due to its strong nutty taste.
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 Toasted Sesame Oil has a smoke point of 320-356 °F. Ideal for stir-frying (in small amounts), and for flavoring in dressings or as a finishing oil. Add to salad dressing, sauces, marinades; or pour over steamed vegetables, fish, grains, potatoes. Serve with dark green leafy vegetables to help with absorption of vitamins and minerals.
