Our Refined Sesame Oil starts with unrefined sesame oil that is expeller-pressed. Expeller pressing is a chemical-free, mechanical process that uses pressure to extract the oil. It works by applying pressure to the seeds, which creates more friction and heat to extract the oil. No external heat is applied.
After this step, the oil undergoes further processing of refining and deodorizing to remove impurities. The result is a lighter oil with little to no sesame scent.
