There are two main types of sesame oil. Both are from the white sesame seed, raw it makes a light coloured oil, roasted before the oil is extracted makes for a darker oil.

I love it but although it is widely regarded as have a high smoke point, using too much of it or burning it will give an unpleasant smell and taste. So please be gentle with it. 🙂

The final product is made using the crushed seeds of the Sesame plant from which oil is collected, preferably using cold pressing techniques.

Even though I use it less often than Olive Oil, this particular cooking ingredient is in PK’s Essential Pantry Cupboard Contents.

Dietary Info: Great for vegetarians,  vegans and is gluten free (as it is not a grass seed).

Enjoy,

PK
