[Taeseong Foods] Toasted Sesame Oil


Today, we introduce you to another premium, artisan-made sesame oil. Taeseong Food is a small seeds grower from Geosan County, an area in North Chungcheong Province known for its clean waters and fertile soil. There, the head grower, Mr. Lee Gwang Bum, has spent the last 30 years cultivating and harvesting sesame and perilla seeds. Mr. Lee takes pride in growing his sesame seeds naturally - without the help of chemical pesticides.

Many sesame oil producers roast their sesame seeds at a high temperature of ~270°C. However, the high heat also eliminates the nutrition within the seeds. Thus, Taeseong roasts their seeds at ~170°C. This temperature - along with other best practices - produces a sesame oil that is both deeply aromatic and full of nutritional value.

Taeseong is not a large producer - it's a small farm! So it does not produce oil in large batches. Instead, a small quantity is made-to-order. This ensures that every customer receives freshly-squeezed, premium-grade sesame oil.

If you're looking for a premium sesame oil to finish-off your favorite Korean dishes, consider this one!

Note: This is a toasted sesame oil - which is the preferred type of sesame oil for everyday Korean recipes. If you're interested in untoasted sesame oil, click here.

Premium Quality

Yes, this is one pricey bottle of sesame seed oil. It’s because it’s PREMIUM quality and the ingredients are 100% from Korea. (It’s really hard to find sesame oils that use 100% ingredients from Korea; if you read the find prints, you will see that others add ingredients from other countries for some unusual reason.) I bought the small bottle (160 ml) and yes, it’s small— finished it in a week. It’s that delicious! Not sure if I can purchase it again due to the price but it was definitely worth experiencing.
