Cold Pressed Sesame Oil

Delicate, energising, warming and a super-healer, our first pressed, cold-pressed virgin organic Sesame seed oil is a perfect general purpose oil.

Spice Zen’s organic Sesame oil is produced in Australia. We cold-press, first-press our unrefined sesame oil using certified organic, premium White unhulled Sesame seeds. This light coloured oil has a delicate, sweet, nutty flavour with all the natural goodness and nutrients. Cold Presed Oils

The first cold-pressed unrefined oil is produced from raw white sesame seeds which are cold-pressed only once in a cork-screw oil press. The naturally pressed oil is allowed to rest to allow any solid sesame seed parts to settle by gravity. This oil is bottled in its purest natural form without the use of any chemicals, preservatives or processing aids. The taste of this artisanal oil is very natural, soft and pleasant and differs from the generally available oils that are chemical-ridden and heavily processed.

Virgin white sesame seed oil is one of the oldest oils used by mankind and used in Ayurveda and traditional practices for centuries. It is also known as ‘Gingelly’ oil and is a sign of immortality in Hindu mythology. It forms a base in the majority of Ayurvedic oils and is very popular in Asian cuisine. Sesame oil has a smoke point of 177 degrees Celsius.

Best for sautéing, shallow-fry, as a salad dressing, marinades, sauces or finishing oil, especially for delicate seafood or char-grilled vegetables. Enjoy it with bread, dips, idlis, dumplings, soups, noodles and rice dishes. Cold Pressed Sesame Oil
