Why Cold-Pressed Sesame Oil?

When Oils are heated, their molecular structure is compromised, creating carcinogenic free radicals. Oils that are heated, when ingested, can contribute to cardiovascular disease and difficulty of the blood to efficiently transport oxygen due to arteriosclerosis. Ingestion of heated oils can also contribute to acne and foul body odor.

Truly cold pressed oils will maintain their nutrient profile, their fats will remain uncorrupted, they taste amazing and they last long, as the oils have not been heated so are less likely to go rancid quickly.

Making of Wood Pressed Sesame Oil:

Fresh Sesame Seeds are Cleaned and then Sun dried. This drying process, however, seems to be important to the resulting taste and quality of the oil.These dried Sesame Seeds is then placed into a Vaagai Wood press (Vaagai Marachekku ) and pressed with Palm Jaggery ( Panai Karuppatti ).

This pressing yields oil with proteins.

These oils are allowed to “Settle” in settling tanks for 4 days.

Oil is filtered & Packed, No Refinement Process & No Preservatives added.
