[Bangyudang] Untoasted Perilla Oil


Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acid (ALA)

[Bangyudang] Untoasted Perilla Oil

Fish like tuna, salmon, or mackerel are excellent sources of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

But did you know that perilla seeds also boast high amounts of Omega-3?

In fact, perilla contains the highest amount of Omega-3 (ALA) among all plants.

One tablespoon of perilla oil has roughly the same amount of ALA found in a whole mackerel! That's why many Korean home cooks incorporate perilla oil into their recipes.

Bangyudang is a renowned local grain roastery in Gwangju with 50+ years of experience. They offer two signature perilla oils.

This is their untoasted version.

The perilla seeds undergo a simple drying process to remove all moisture. Then they are pressed - without undergoing any roasting.

Skipping the toasting process results in a much lighter, subtle-tasting oil.

But more importantly, the oil retains almost all of its natural nutrition - including the high Omega-3 content.

We recommend using this untoasted perilla oil for drizzling over foods that have been stir-fried or lightly pan-fried, such as pan-fried tofu, stir-fried mushroom medley, or Japchae. The subtle perilla taste beautifully complements stir-fried dishes.

The oil is available in three sizes: 100ml, 200ml & 320ml.

Note: This untoasted perilla oil is best reserved for salads, consumed raw, or drizzled as a rice topping. For most everyday Korean recipes, we recommend using a toasted oil. You can find it here.

Untoasted Perilla Oil

This oil is made from untoasted/unroasted perilla seeds

The perilla seeds are only dried until completely moisture-free - without undergoing any toasting or roasting

After drying, the seeds are pressed to extract their omega-3-rich oil

As the seeds aren't roasted, none of the omega-3 is lost during extraction

As a result, this perilla oil boasts the highest omega-3 concentration of 60%


Banyudang Roasting Scale

We roast our seed to 5 different We roast our seeds to five different levels (1-5), with 1 indicating only-drying to 5 representing a strong, high roast. 

This untoasted perilla oil earns the lowest rating of P1 because it's only dried to remove moisture from the seeds, without any roasting involved.

What does it taste like?

Tasting Note: Very Subtle Nutty flavor

It closely preserves the natural flavor of perilla seeds, providing an authentic taste of nature

Note: In Korean cuisine, toasted perilla oil is morecommonly used. This untoasted version is best reserved for salads, consumed raw, or drizzled as a topping for rice.


This untoasted oil has a vibrant gold color


Perilla Seeds: The King of Plant-based Omega-3

Omega-3 is abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and anchovies.

For those who don't consume fish frequently or follow a vegetarian/vegan diet, perilla seeds serve as an excellent alternative.

Compared to other plant-based sources, perilla oil boasts the highest proportion of biologically active omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids.

This includes, above all, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).


Available in 3 sizes:

100ml, 200ml & 320ml


Perilla oil serves excellently as a finishing oil for dishes.

Impart a touch of nuttiness to pan-fried dishes such as tofu, eggs, fritters, and more

Do not use it as cooking oil to deep-fry foods.


Recipe Idea 1: Perilla-Oil Fried Egg Bibimbap

1. Get a frying pan hot and drizzle in some Perilla Oil. Crack an egg and let it sizzle in the pan.

(As it fries, you'll smell the perilla oil fill the air - so appetizing!)

2. Scoop some hot rice into a bowl. Place a small piece of Butter over the rice and let it melt.

3. Then drizzle a small amount of Soy Sauce and Sesame Oil over the rice. Top it off with the fried egg.

4. If you have dried laver flakes, sprinkle that in. (Bon Appetit!)


Recipe Idea 2: Korean Beef Pancakes & Green Onion Salad

1. Whisk an egg in a bowl. Pour Korean Pancake Mix into a separate bowl.

2. Dip each thin cut of beef into the pancake mix first, followed by a dip into the egg-wash.

3. Drizzle Perilla Oil into a frying pan. Place on medium-low heat. Once hot, cook beef pieces until light-golden brown.

4. Next, julienne spring onion into thin slices.

5. Make spicy salad dressing: Gochujang Flakes (2.5 teaspoon), Soy Sauce (3 teaspoon), Honey (1 teaspoon), Vinegar (1 teaspoon), Sesame seeds (1 teaspoon), Minced Garlic (1/2 teaspoon), Sugar (1/2 teaspoon), Sesame Oil (1/2 teaspoon).

6. Pour spicy dressing over spring onion slices and toss thoroughly.

7: (Optional): Drop an egg yolk over the green onion salad. And enjoy!



Please store our perilla and sesame oils in a cool, dry place at room temperature (15-25°C) — no need to place in refrigerator


Do not store oil in refrigerator!

High-quality seed oils are sensitive to changes in temperature, moisture, sunlight, and pressure.

Placing the oil in and out of the refrigerator can cause rapid temperature fluctuations, which may lead to potential spoilage.

Simply store the oil at room temperature - in a dry, cool place


Bangyudang - Korean Authentic Roastery

We placed great emphasis on perfecting the traditional Korean 'roasted 고소산' flavor for authentic Korean cooking

Korea-Grown Seeds. Precise Roasting. Traditional Flavor.


Point 1: Far Infrared Roasting

We've integrated our 50+ years of roasting experience with modern technology.

Infrared roasting heats the seeds faster, more uniformly, and at relatively lower temperatures compared to conventional hot air/flame roasters.

It also preserves the natural nutrition and antioxidants in the seeds.


Point 2: Aroma Loss Prevention System

After the infrared roasting process, the seeds undergo a rapid cooling process.

This preserves the nutritional and flavorful integrity of the seeds - minimizing loss of nutrients and taste compounds.


Point 3: Low-Temperature Oil Screw System

Extensive research has revealed that the key health ingredients in the seeds are found abundant in the cell walls.

Therefore, instead of pressing the raw materials with pressure, a system has been developed to finely break down the cellulose in the cell walls for oil extraction. 

This allows for the extraction of the active ingredients within the fibers.

In short, the oil retains the original nutrition of the seeds.


Point 4: Anti-Oxidation Refinement System

To ensure the oil tastes its finest upon receipt, we have minimized its contact with air throughout the production process.

Furthermore, clear oil is produced through the use of extremely fine 'labratory-grade' filters

Also, to maintain product freshness, we operate a system where the 6-layer filters are replaced every 3 hours.


Please give the bottle a good shake before pouring - helps to improve taste!
