Deep, Fragrant Perilla Flavor
[Bangyudang] Toasted Perilla Oil
Fish like tuna, salmon or mackerel are great sources for Omega-3 Fatty Acids.
But did you know that perilla seeds also have high amounts of Omega-3? In fact, perilla contains the highest amount of Omega-3 (ALA) - more than any other plants. One tablespoon of perilla oil has roughly the same amount of ALA found in 1 whole mackerel! That's why many Korean homecooks use perilla oil in their recipes.
Bangyudang is a famous, local grain roastery in Gwangju that has over 40 years of experience. They produce two signature perilla oils:
This is their toasted version. The perilla seeds are washed then roasted to just the right level. This roasting process produces a deep, nutty-perilla flavor that works beautifully with Korean banchans. It's the more commonly used perilla oil in traditional Korean recipes.
The oil is available in 2 sizes: 210ml & 350ml.
Note: This is toasted perilla oil - which is what is typically used for Korean cooking. For untoasted, cold-pressed oil, click here.
This is a really great toasted perilla oil. Bangyudang, unlike sesame oil, is difficult to find in the US. This particular bottle has a nice nutty flavor though overall it is a bit expensive.

Toasted vs. Untoasted Perilla Oil?
Toasted Perilla Oil: The perilla seeds are first toasted and then the oil is extracted. This toasting process creates an oil that has a much bolder, assertive flavor. However, some of the nutrition will be lost due to the heat.
Note: Toasted Perilla Oil is traditionally used for Korean recipes for its bold nutty flavor.
Untoasted Perilla Oil: The perilla seeds are not toasted. This creates a lighter-tasting oil. Since the seeds are not exposed to heat, the nutrition in the seeds are not lost - higher amounts of Omega-3.
Note: Cold-Pressed Perilla Oil has become more popular in the last decade due to more health-conscience buyers.
