[Chung-O] Organic Toasted & Crushed Sesame Seeds (깨소금)

Introducing Chung-O's Organic Toasted & Crushed Sesame Seeds!

In many Korean recipes, you'll find a staple ingredient called 깨소금 ('kkae-so-geum'), which refers to coarsely ground sesame seeds. 

When sesame seeds are crushed (as opposed to whole sesame seeds), their nutty aroma and flavor intensify, adding delightful texture to dishes.

This crushed sesame seed seasoning is a classic finishing touch for Korean banchans, noodle dishes, and bibimbap.

While some may opt to crush whole seeds using a mortar and pestle, many home cooks find this step cumbersome.

That's why you'll often find both whole sesame seeds and crushed sesame seeds stocked in Korean pantries.

Today, we're excited to introduce our organic crushed sesame seeds.

It's made with one ingredient: 100% organic sesame seeds (imported from India). 

Furthermore, Chung-O uses germinated sesame seeds. This germination process activates enzymes in the seeds, making the nutrients more accessible and easier to digest. As a result, these sesame seeds have higher vitamin & mineral content compared to regular sesame seeds.

To ensure quality, Chung-O washes the sesame seeds three times during processing, effectively removing any impurities or debris.

Following that, the seeds are toasted - at a low temperature - to enhance their nutty flavor and retain nutritional value.

Chung-O Sesame Seeds are a perfect choice for garnishing your well-made Korean dishes!

Available in 90g size.
