Organic Lightly Toasted Sesame Oil

The sesame seed has been considered a highly prized food source in Babylon, Assyria and many other civilizations dating back over 4,000 years. Its exquisite, full-flavored taste is perfectly suited for marinades, stir-fries and Asian cuisines.

ASSISTS WITH:

  • Providing omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids

Pure, unfiltered, and unrefined Flora™ Culinary Oils are some of the finest organic oils in the world. Their sublime flavor and exceptional quality come from a variety of techniques derived from Old World European pressing methods.

Certified organic seeds and nuts are lightly toasted. Then, our proprietary Hydro-Therm™ process employing gentle, low-temperatures, uses sea salt and cool, filtered water to protect and ensure a full spectrum of omega fatty acids. The result is a more savory tasting oil than we could otherwise achieve.

To maintain peak nutritional value and prevent oxidation, all Flora™ oils are nitrogen flushed and packaged in light-resistant dark glass bottles.

Flora™ Culinary Oils provide your body with healthful foundational fats. It’s important to note that our bodies require different types of fat for optimal health. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids (EFAs) because they cannot be manufactured in the human body. They must be obtained through dietary sources.

Smoke Point

When oil begins to smoke it starts to breakdown, the process is called thermal oxidation. The smoke indicates that carcinogens are being released into the air and free radicals are forming in the oil. Oil that begins to smoke should ideally be discarded and replaced with fresh oil for optimal health and taste. Beware of highly processed supermarket oils. They are made with a long shelf life in mind, rather than considerations of dietary health.

Know your fats!

Polyunsaturated Fats: These fats include omega-3 and omega-6 EFAs. Every cell, tissue, gland and organ is dependent upon the presence of EFAs. They are the main structural components of every cell membrane, are necessary for cell growth and division, and regulate cell activities.

Monounsaturated Fats: The Mediterranean diet has long been known for its healthful benefits. Cardio-vascular health and cholesterol regulation are often attributed to monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acids.

Saturated Fats: Do you know the difference between long-, short- and medium-chain fatty acids? Long-chain fatty acids from animals are often harmful because they can cause arteries to become clogged. Short-chain and medium-chain fatty acids, which come from plant oils, support good health and are used for energy by our bodies.

Trans Fats: Consumption of trans-fatty acids should be avoided. They are created by a chemical process called hydrogenation. Through this process, fats are created that are more shelf stable. However, it is nearly impossible for our bodies to digest them. Read labels carefully and avoid products with an ingredient lists that include hydrogenated vegetable oils or hydrogenated fats.
