The tiny seeds of sesame have been known as a source of food oil for over 4,000 years in many Asian countries. Unfortunately, in industrialized countries, Sesame Oil is mostly produced in vast quantities in what is called a chemical extraction method, using hexane, bleaching, refining, and deodorizing, which results in a bland and tasteless oil. In contrast, Flora organic cold pressed sesame oil is a truly cold-pressed oil, pressed at temperatures below 45¡C yielding just a few quarts per hour. Their atmosphere control system keeps the oil free from exposure to light and oxygen. Unfiltered, retaining all the nutrients, and bottled in amber glass, this delicate oil is the purest you can find. Sesame seeds contain the natural preservatives known as sesamol and sasamolin. 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.

I love this oil for it's health benefits and it's safe production. It is clean and clear and packaged in dark glass with a metal lid. As far as flavor, it is very mild, which may be exactly what some people want. As for me, I like a stronger sesame flavor on my salads. Good product.
