[Chung-O] Sesame Seeds

Grown in Korea, Perfect for Garnish

[Chung-O] Sesame Seeds


Chung-O Sesame Seeds are 100% grown in Korea. 

This is not the case for large food brands in Korea. If you read their labels, you'll see that their sesame seeds are imported in bulk from countries like India and China. This keeps their prices low. But Chung-O is a regional producer that prides itself on Korea-grown, organic farming. They were actually the first company in Korea to receive official recognition by the government as an organic farm.

These sesame seeds are firm, round - not flat and dry - and packed with nutty flavor. During processing, Chung-O washes the sesame seeds a total of 3 times to get rid of any impurities or debris. The seeds are then toasted to bring out their natural nutty flavor.

Use these sesame seeds to garnish your well-made Korean dishes.

        About the Brand

          Black Sesame Seeds?

          Black sesame seeds are used in Korean cuisine to garnish white or light- colored dishes - like rice and banchan. They have a slightly stronger and nuttier taste than their white counterparts.

          Where does the color come from? White sesame seeds are sold with their brownish hulls removed, revealing the beige seeds within. Black sesame seeds are sold with their dark hulls still intact - giving them their distinct black color.
