[Jirisan Chereum] 100% Korean Sesame Oil (Lightly Roasted)


[Jirisan Chereum] 100% Korean Sesame Oil - Lightly Roasted

Korean Sesame Oil, Lightly Roasted

[Jirisan Chereum] 100% Korean Sesame Oil (Lightly Roasted)

Today, we introduce one of Korea’s best-tasting sesame oils!

It’s made by Jirisan Chereum - an owner-operated farm in the pristine base of Mt. Jirisan (Korea).

This sesame oil is made with 100% Korea-grown sesame seeds (not imported from China).

Now, Jirisan Chereum offers different roasts for its sesame & perilla oils (see chart).

The longer the seeds are roasted, the darker in color and the nuttier in flavor the oil gets.

However, with increased roasting, the more of the seed’s nutrition is lost.

This specific sesame oil is lightly-roasted.

It has a light-nutty flavor.

Importantly, it retains high amounts of the sesame seed’s natural nutrition.

(Sesame seeds contains high amounts of calcium, B-Vitamins, Vitamin E, and antioxidants as well as lowering blood pressure and boosting heart health.)

Where should I use this specific oil? 

This lightly-roasted oil is best for use on namul banchans, fried eggs, fried tofu, jeon, salad dressings, bibim-guksu, dried laver sheets, jook (rice porridge), baby foods.

Jirisan Chereum does not press its oils in advance.

To ensure the best flavor and maximum freshness, they press their seeds-to-order, making just enough oil to cover daily output.

If you’re interested in sesame oil for its rich nutrients, this oil contains high amounts of the seed’s original nutrition.

Offered in 160 & 270ml

After opening, please store this oil in the refrigerator.

About the Founder of Jirisan Chereum

Ever since Ms. Jeong Eun (founder) was a child, she carried a big smile on her face

When she opened her farm, locals in the area would comment that her constant smiling made her look naïve and aloof

However, they soon understood the importance of working with a smile - especially during the hardships/economic downturns

Her smile  - and radiant energy - has now became a signature part of Ms. Jeong Eun's ethos of farming  

What makes Jirisan Chereum Special?

Our Jirisan Chereum farm is located in one of Korea's most pristine mountain, Mt. Jirisan

The sesame & perilla crops are farmed directly by the owner (and team)

100% Korea-grown!

The sesame & perilla plants in Mt. Jirisan are packed with nutrition!

We've experimented with countless number of temperature & roasting times to find the optimal settings

We're excited for you to try the best-tasting sesame & perilla oil!

We do not press our oils in advance

Instead, we press our seeds-to-order, making enough oil to meet daily orders

This ensures our customers get the freshest, best-tasting oil

Why do we press our oil with low heat?

When pressing seeds - with low heat - the oil retains hight amounts of the seed's original nutrition

When seeds are roasted too long (burned), harmful molecules like Benzopyrene are produced

There is no burnt flavor in this oil - premium, clean taste!

Dark-colored glass containers to protect the oil's quality

Sesame & perilla oils begin to deteriorate under heat/sun exposure

To prevent this, our bottles are made with dark-colored glass to reduce UV exposure

Please store bottles in cool, dark areas (away from sunlight)
