|Ingredients||toasted sesame seed oil|
The tiny seeds of the sesame plant have been valued since biblical times as a flavorful ingredient and a rich source of oil for culinary purposes. The seeds are almost 50 percent oil by weight and yield a light, golden oil that's highly stable and resists becoming rancid.
Plain sesame oil is delicately flavored and well suited for table use or cooking. Oil made from toasted sesame seeds is much darker and is used primarily as a flavoring.
Toasted sesame oil is visibly different from the regular variety, with a deep, dark red-brown color reminiscent of coffee or soy sauce.
While the regular oil production process gently heats the seeds to no more than 300 degrees Fahrenheit, the seeds used for toasted oil are thoroughly browned at a temperature of 360 degrees Fahrenheit for up to a half-hour.
The resulting oil resists oxygenation and rancidity better than regular sesame oil, making it shelf-stable for long-term storage.
It's too strongly flavored to use as a cooking oil, but it adds an assertively nutty sesame flavor to foods when drizzled on at the end
Made from roasted whole sesame seed, unrefined and expeller pressed, this oil is ideal for lightly sprinkling on steamed vegetables, useful as a marinade, in a stir fry, sauces, dressings or vinaigrettes.
Amber glass bottled to protect quality and flavor, since clear bottles let the effects of sunlight alter the make–up of the oil. Sesamolin and sesamin, natural antioxidants found in sesame seeds and sesame oil, make unrefined sesame oil especially nourishing and acts as a natural preservative. Great for use in stir frys! A truly unique and healthy culinary oil.
