La Tourangelle Toasted Sesame Oil - New Larger Size 16.9 oz can

La Tourangelle has partnered with one of the oldest Japanese oil mills to bring you this toasted sesame oil, crafted in central Japan strictly following 270-year-old traditional methods.
According to La Tourangelle President Matthieu Kohlmeyer, “Our mill slowly roasts the sesame seeds using lower temperatures. The result is a lighter colored, more richly flavored oil with a subtle, toasted taste. Most Asian Sesame Oils available in the United States derive their dark, amber color and sometimes burnt flavor from the rapid, high temperature toasting of the sesame seeds.”

Usage
Sesame Oil has long been the universal cooking medium in Asia, imparting the characteristic flavor to the foods of its regions. In Chinese and Korean cuisine it is added as a flavor highlight to cooked dishes. The Japanese often add about 10% toasted Sesame Oil to the oil used for tempura or deep-frying, creating a rich, background flavor. American cooks may want to use Sesame Oil to flavor an Asian stir-fry or noodle dish or as a marinade for meat or fish. Sesame Oil makes a delicious dressing for a Chinese Chicken Salad. Sesame Oil, rice vinegar, fresh grated ginger, and mustard is a delicious dressing for any combination of salad greens.

Temperature
Suitable for low-medium heat: Perfect for sautéing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish.

Health benefits
Sesame Oil, also known as gingelly oil and til oil, is an ancient ingredient. The Assyrians used it as a cooking oil more than 600 years before Christ. It was expensive, however, and a hundred years later in Persia only the rich could afford it. It is still used as a medicine in India , and oil pressed from the raw seed is a massage oil in Ayurvedic medicine. Its low saturated fatty acid content and high unsaturated fatty acid content makes it a very healthy oil.

Production process
Our mill slowly roasts the sesame seeds using lower temperatures. The result is a lighter colored, more richly flavored oil with a subtle, toasted taste. The production of Sesame Oil begins with sesame seeds harvested from South America or Africa. The seeds are toasted and then expeller (machine) pressed to extract the oil. This oil is filtered several times and then bottled. The quality of Sesame Oil varies depending on the quality of the seeds, and the length and temperature of the toasting process. While nearly all the Sesame Oil now available in the U.S. and in Europe is produced in China or Taiwan using methods that involved certain production shortcuts, La Tourangelle's Japanese partner uses only the freshest, highest quality seeds that are painstakingly cleaned and slow toasted. Japanese craftsmanship in the production of sesame oil is recognized as superior throughout Asia.
