The Taste

A light golden oil, made from untoasted seeds, Olivado Sesame Oil has a mild, nutty flavour. Excellent as a neutral cooking oil, suitable for high heats.

The Goodness

A good source of Vitamin E, which is enhanced by the sesamin and sesaminol compounds. Recent studies show that sesame oil can assist in the management of cholesterol and blood pressure, as well as in weight reduction*; as a mouthwash, sesame oil was found to be as effective as a commercial mouthwash, but without staining the teeth and a lingering aftertaste.**

The cold extraction preserves all the natural goodness of raw sesame seeds, untoasted. Contains no trans fats, additives, preservatives or artificial ingredients.

WARNING: May contain traces of peanut, sesame and tree nuts

Sesame oil has been used for over 4,000 years and is part of the Vedic/Ayurvedic healing tradition of India. Containing sesamin and sesaminol, this queen of oils has remarkable properties that are only now beginning to be scientifically understood.

Traditionally used in India for “pulling” as a healing mouthwash, it is also used as a cooking oil.
