Melrose Organic Sesame Oil has been expeller-pressed and unrefined to retain the natural flavour of the sesame seed and has a lower smoke point than refined sesame oils. Traditionally used in Asian cooking, it can also be added to Mexican and Middle Eastern dishes.
100% organic expeller-pressed sesame oil
Directions for Use
Best used by adding to sauces and marinades or as a finishing oil by drizzling over Asian dishes for a flavour boost. Melrose Organic Sesame Oil is pressed from raw sesame seeds giving it a lighter mild sesame flavour adding a subtle nuttiness to dishes – unlike dark sesame oil that is pressed after toasting the seeds and has a more intense sesame flavour.
When to use this oil? Cooking at low temperatures and as a finishing oil.
Smoke point – low. Can be heated to approximately 160°C.
