Sesame seeds have been known as a source of food oil in many Asian countries for over 4,000 years. Unfortunately, in industrialized counties, Sesame Oil is mostly produced in vast quantities with chemical extraction methods using hexane, bleaching, refining and deodorizing, which results in a bland and tasteless oil.
In contrast, Flora Sesame Oil is a truly cold-pressed oil. When refrigerated, Flora Sesame Oil will partially solidify, which shows that it has a high percentage of monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids. This makes Sesame Oil more stable with a longer shelf life.
Flora Sesame Oil contains:
- 43% polyunsaturated Linoleic acid (omega- 6)
- 36% monounsaturated Oleic acid (omega-9)
- 14% saturated fatty acids.
Flora Oils are truly cold-pressed and unrefined. All seeds used in our oils are grown organically and are selected for their high quality and abundance of Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs. To ensure Flora's Seasame Oil is the safest, best tasting oil possible, it has been non-GMO Project Verified.
EFAs such as omega-3s and omega-6s are needed by our bodies, but the body cannot make them on its own. They must be obtained from dietary sources. Using only the finest ingredients, Flora is proud to support your healthy lifestyle with a full line of Pure Premium Oils.
The quality of Flora's oils is ensured by a third party certifying agency, Quality Assurance International (QAI).
