This white sesame oil is cold-pressed in the old-fashioned way, thick with aroma and warmth. The seeds are toasted over a meticulously controlled wood fire, steamed to break down the seed walls, then shaped into oilseed cakes in circular molds. These circular cakes, wrapped in paper, are stacked in a hydraulic press and slowly compressed together to squeeze out the oil. Unlike expeller-pressed sesame oil, a method that generates heat, this compression method is a low-heat process, which keeps the oil as pure and unaltered as possible.

The resulting oil is toasty, fresh and well balanced. Sesame oil is healthy oil, containing mostly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and is packed with antioxidants and amino acids. Use it for salad dressings, finishing stir fries, or use as a dip. Absolutely versatile, but avoid high heat.

Taste note:

fragrant, sweet and slightly bitter with notes of toast and caramel

This well balanced aromatic oil is perfect for finishing dishes and seasoning. Add a small dash at the end of a stir fry or on your steamed fish or vegetables . Dishes: cold cucumber salad, sesame noodles.

About the producer:

Dong He Oil is a traditional producer of cold-pressed oils and stone-ground sesame pastes located in Chiayi, Taiwan. The oil mill was founded 100 years ago in 1921, as the original producer of cooking oil for the Dongshi township in Chiayi county. Operating in the original wood-beamed, brick building with much of the original machinery, Dong He upholds the same traditional craft principles that distinguishes their products from competitors. They continue to produce cold-pressed sesame, peanut and camellia seed oils today, and have added stone-ground sesame pastes, peanut butters, and a line of specialty sauces featuring house ingredients and family recipes.
