The satisfying, nutty flavor of high quality sesame oil is the hallmark of authentic Asian cuisine. From stir-fries to salad dressings, toasted sesame oil stirs the imagination and adds a Far Eastern note to everyday fare. What's more, sesame oil is one of the world's purest and healthiest cooking oils. The overpowering taste of many commercial brands of toasted sesame oil destroys the delicate balance of flavor required to do many authentic Asian dishes. Only the careful, slow processing used by traditional sesame producers maintains and preserves the subtle flavor of roasted sesame seeds.
