100% Premium Sesame Oil
[Gae Seong] Toasted Sesame Oil
Gae Seong is a regional Korean brand producing 100% Sesame Oil.
Gae Seong's Sesame Oil has a deep, nutty taste with an extra-clean finish. They toast the sesame seeds to just the right level and squeeze the seeds just once. This sesame oil works beautifully as a garnish on bibimbap or any stir-fried dishes.
Gae Seong puts all of its oils through a 5-stage filtering process. One glance and you'll notice that there aren't any specks of seeds in the glass bottle. This is in contrast to oil from larger food conglomerates (which are typically filtered 3 times) and have a layer of sediment at the bottom. Gae Seong has a strong reputation in Korea for having premium quality oils and is sold on the shelves at Korean department stores.
Note: Gae Seong procures its sesame seeds from India - the top sesame-seed producing country in the world. The sesame seeds are then processed, toasted and pressed into oil in Korea.
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.
It was my first time trying it out and I guess I had to get used to the taste. It adds a lot of flavor to the dish but start by adding tiny amounts to it.The product itself came to me in very good packaging condition, so overall I am a happy customer ^_^

What does Sesame Oil taste like?
Korean Sesame Oil is made by pressing toasted sesame seeds (left image). It's one of the most distinctive, fragrant and flavorful oils in cooking - a very deep, nutty aroma.
So why's it used so often in Korean cooking? Sesame oil does a great job in "rounding-out" the sharp notes of garlic, soy sauce or peppers. It brings all the flavors together. Think of it as the bass riff in a song!
The sesame seeds are from India.
A: The seeds are toasted and pressed into oil in Korea.
It's pressed. Sesame oil (aka dark sesame oil) that's used in Korea cuisine is made with toasted sesame seeds.
