»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.
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. Sesamolin is a natural oxidation protection which provides the oil with a longer shelf life.
Heat sesame oil only carefully and use it to improve vegetables, fish, rice, and pasta dishes right before serving.

What does cold pressing mean?
"Cold pressing" assumes that no external heat is added. When we cold-press oils, the temperature is monitored and we ensure that no high temperatures are reached. We can therefore guarantee that the quality of the oil is not impaired.
What does "virgin" mean in the context of oils?
A virgin oil is a cooking oil which is obtained exclusively using mechanical processes without preheating the raw materials. It is not subjected to chemical or thermal treatment or to any other refinement process and thus preserves its authentic, natural taste and the essential components of the raw material. This also makes it suitable for eating raw.
