Flora Bija Organic Hydro-Therm Sesame Oil
- Good nutrition.
- Providing Essential Fatty Acids.
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, pressed at temperatures below 118˚F. 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), 43% monounsaturated Oleic acid (omega-9), 12% saturated fatty acids.
