What is "sesame oil"?

Sesame oil is a flavorful oil extracted from sesame seeds, a common ingredient in many cuisines worldwide. It has a distinctive nutty taste and aroma, which adds depth and richness to dishes. Sesame oil comes in two main varieties: toasted sesame oil and untoasted sesame oil. Toasted sesame oil is darker in color and has a stronger flavor, while untoasted sesame oil has a milder taste and lighter color. Both varieties are widely used in cooking, especially in Asian cuisine, for stir-frying, sautéing, and salad dressings. Sesame oil is also valued for its health benefits, as it contains antioxidants and healthy fats. Additionally, it provides essential nutrients such as vitamin E and various minerals.
