Description: Appearance: Pale yellow to golden yellow liquid Odor: Characteristic odor Sesame oil is a traditional oil that has been used in various cultures around the world for at least 5000 years. Archeological excavations throughout the Middle East revealed the use of sesame oil dating back to 3000 BC. Persia and India were also cultivating this tiny treasure for its oil. Sesame oil was the ideal base for making exotic perfumes, a practice that dates back to the Babylonians circa 2100 to 689 BC. The Babylonians also used the oil for cooking, and sesame cakes. They also made wine from sesame and even perfected a brandy employing sesame seeds. Sesame oil is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Unlike most other modern-day oils containing high amounts of polyunsaturated oil, sesame oil is not prone to oxidation due to the presence of sesamin and sesamol, natural antioxidants.
