Organic Hydro-Therm Sesame Oil
The sesame seed has been a prized food source in many civilizations dating back over 4000 years. Its exquisite, full-flavored taste is perfectly suited for marinades, stir-fries, and Asian cuisines. Flora's blend is a source of omegas-6 (7 grams/tbsp.) and -9 (5 grams/tbsp.), key foundational fats that our bodies must obtain through dietary sources. Flora's unique hydro-therm technique, inspired by traditional European pressing, uses a gentle, low-temperature method, ensuring the protection of the full spectrum of essential fatty acids and the highest taste and quality.
Smoke Point: 350º
When oil begins to smoke it starts to breakdown, the process is called thermal oxidation. The smoke indicates that carcinogens are being released into the air and free radicals are forming in the oil. Oil that begins to smoke should ideally be discarded and replaced with fresh oil for optimal health and taste. Beware of highly processed supermarket oils. They are made with a long shelf life in mind, rather than considerations of dietary health. Know your fats!
