»Open Sesame!« – In the tale »Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves«, the sesame fruit symbolizes wealth. Indeed, a true treasure is revealed once the sesame capsule opens: the sesame seeds. With its healthy qualities, the delicious oil derived from these seeds is especially cherished in the context of macrobiotic cuisine. For instance, sesame oil is said to enhance the ability to concentrate, also, a detoxifying potential is attributed to the oil.
To ensure the completion of the ripening after picking, the farmers bundle the manually cut plants in an upright position for several days. Not before all the capsules have opened up, the sesame seeds are shaken out over a cloth.
For our fair trade certified BIO PLANÈTE Sesame Oil, we press pure, natural seeds very gently to make sure the contained sesamolin is preserved. Sesamolin is a natural oxidation protection which provides the oil with a longer shelf life.
Our cold pressed Sesame Oil has a nutty, particularly mild taste. It lends an aromatic, faintly Asian aroma to your dishes. Heat sesame oil only carefully and use it to improve vegetables, fish, rice, and pasta dishes right before serving.
