dark sesame oil 50ml [CJ Snow White]


Dark sesame
oil, as the name suggests, is much darker in color than the pale golden
variety. It’s pressed from toasted sesame seeds, which give it a coffee-like
hue. The toasted seeds also give this oil a very intense sesame flavor, one
that would be overpowering if it were used for cooking. Dark sesame oil is used
instead as a condiment or flavoring, added to foods just before serving to give
them a rich sesame flavor.

Sesame Oil (참기름) [cham-gi-reum] is an amber colored, aromatic oil, made from pressed
toasted sesame seeds that is a common ingredient in Korean cooking.

It is not used as a cooking
oil due to its intense nutty and buttery flavor and aroma;
however, because of that, it is an excellent seasoning and flavor enhancer.



1.    Sesame Oil is widely used in Korea to make namul
(vegatable side dish) because it adds a beautiful glossy finish.

2.    Similarly, the iconic dish, bibimbap, requires a
big spoon of sesame oil on top to add both beauty and flavor.

3.     Koreans
also mix salt, pepper and sesame oil to make a dipping sauce for grilled meat
because it reduces the gamey taste of pork and lamb.

4.    Sesame Oil is a rich source of vitamins and
minerals such as Vitamin E, magnesium, copper, calcium, and zinc. And unlike
most oils, sesame oil is high the beneficial poly-unsaturated fatty acid,
Omega-6, which is known to lower blood pressure.
