Toasted Sesame Oil
Toasted sesame oil is a dark brown oil with a strong aroma and flavor of toasted sesame seeds. Our oil is made from carefully toasted whole sesame seeds. Our oil is expeller pressed, and it is not refined. Toasted sesame oil is a very stable oil due to its strong antioxidant activity and the sesame lignans modification during the toasting of the seed.
- Sesame seed nutrients and benefits are still present in the toasted sesame oil. It contains primarily polyunsaturated (Omega-6) and monounsaturated fat.
- The antioxidant activity of the natural occurring sesame lignans is enhanced. Sesame lignans have been attributed to have numerous health benefits including blood cholesterol reduction, oxidative stress attenuation, lipid metabolism modification, anti-inflammatory effects, and vitamin-E enhancement among others. Tocopherols and other vitamin-E precursors are other nutrients present in this oil.
- Toasted sesame oil is essential in oriental dishes. Its subtle nutty flavor allows this oil to be used both as a cooking oil and a condiment.
- The oil offers a way to add and enhance flavors to products such as marinades and salad dressings. It is best for low to medium heat, including stir-frying, baking, dipping, dressings, or drizzled on finished dishes.
