EDEN Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil is made from Eden selected, certified organic, white sesame seeds. After cleaning and removing the hulls, the seeds are placed in a screw press called an expeller and crushed to extract the oil. The oil is placed in settling tanks where sediment is allowed to settle out. It's then double filtered at ambient or lower temperature through a 100% cotton canvas filter press resulting in a clear, bright colored oil. This pure unrefined, extra virgin oil is then nitrogen flushed bottled in amber glass to protect the aroma, flavor, and valuable nutrients.
EDEN Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil is made only from the finest grade organic sesame seeds and is produced naturally without the use of chemicals. Expeller pressing generates little heat, preserves the oils valuable nutrients, color, and delicious nutty flavor and aroma. Although there is no legal definition for extra virgin sesame oil, it is generally understood among oil producers that it means the following: it is made from 100 percent sesame seeds, is oil from the first pressing, no excessive heat is used in the process, the free fatty acid is below 1 percent, and the taste is sweet and characteristic of sesame. EDEN Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil meets all of these conditions.
Most commercial seed oils, including sesame oil, are made by crushing the seeds and heating them beyond the smoke point, then treating the seed with hexane for a more complete extraction. It is then treated with caustic soda (sodium hydroxide), bleach, and chemical deodorants. All commercial oils are the same pale color and taste very similar regardless of the seed type due to this chemical processing.
EDEN Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil contains 6g monounsaturated and 6g polyunsaturated, and is cholesterol free. Sesamol and sesamin, naturally occurring antioxidants found in sesame seeds and sesame oil, make unrefined sesame oil especially nourishing, and they act as a natural preservative in the oil. One of the most shelf stable unrefined vegetable oils.
EDEN Organic Extra Virgin Sesame Oil is a delicious ingredient for making mayonnaise, dressings, spreads, and pasta toppings. Highly versatile and can be used for virtually all cooking needs from sautés and stir fries to baking.
