Korea's #1 Best-Selling Sesame Oil
[Ottogi] Toasted Sesame Oil
Ottogi's Toasted Sesame Oil has been the #1 Best-Selling Sesame Oil in Korea - for 26 years!
This Sesame Oil has a deep, nutty aroma. Use it to to garnish Korean dishes or round-out aromatic flavors in Korean marinades. Ottogi uses an indirect heating process to toast its sesame seeds to just the right level. The toasted seeds are pressed and the oil is filtered 3x for an extra clean finish. This product is found in nearly every Korean pantry.
Note: Large Korean food companies - like Ottogi - import their sesame seeds from top sesame-producing countries. Ottogi imports from India, Pakistan and Ethiopia. The imported seeds are then toasted and pressed in Korea.
Note: This is a toasted sesame oil - which is the type of sesame oil used for everyday Korean cuisine. For an untoasted (cold-pressed) oil, click here.
Very good sesame oil that has a deep flavour - perfect for Korean cooking and much better than the one that we buy here.

What does Sesame Oil taste like?
Korean Sesame Oil is made by pressing toasted sesame seeds (left). It's one of the most distinctive, fragrant and flavorful oils in cooking - a very deep, nutty aroma.
So why's it used so often in Korean cooking? Sesame oil does a great job in "rounding-out" the sharp notes of garlic, soy sauce or chili peppers. It brings all the flavors together. Think about it as the underlying bass riff in a song!
A: It's pressed. Sesame oil (aka dark sesame oil) that's used in Korea cuisine and Asian cooking is typically made from toasted sesame seeds.
The Sesame Seeds are grown in India, Pakistan and Ethiopia
