Sesame Oil Health Benefits and Culinary Uses

Supercharge with this unique tasting sesame oil

Kaizer White Sesame Oil is unlike any other sesame oil you have tried. This raw and unprocessed version has a sensory appeal and nutritional value that puts it in a category far above the toasted sesame oils. These heavily toasted oils exclusively line the supermarket shelves. They are nutritionally barren with a strong and crude aroma and taste. Unlike its commercial counterpart, Kaizer’s cold-pressed white sesame oil is gentle on the senses. It uplifts mood, boosts motivation, and speeds up recovery from fatigue. Toasted sesame oil will do none of this for you.

Fend off wrinkles, slow down ageing

Kaizer sesame oil is the most antioxidant packed oil of all.1 Antioxidants are a friend in the battle against ageing.2 Regular use of sesame oil will help you look younger for longer, while you enjoy the intriguing smoky flavour.

Good-bye fatigue

Feel mentally and physically exhausted day after day? Daily tiredness could be caused by persistent oxidative stress. Environmental factors and a poor diet can lead to chronic fatigue. Sesamin and vitamin E in sesame oil can provide physical and mental vigour by eliminating the free radicals that sap your energy.3

The dietary supplement for depression and Parkinson’s

Sesame oil can raise the level of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Depressed levels of dopamine affect vital brain functions such as sleep, memory, mood, motor control, arousal, and learning.4 Sesame oil is shown to improve symptoms of clinical depression.5 And sesame oil can prevent the neuron damage that occurs in Parkinson’s disease.6

Less guilt, more pleasure

Sesame oil, rich in phytosterols, is as effective as olive oil at naturally lowering bad cholesterol or LDL7,8 and it can even increase good cholesterol or HDL.9 If you have high cholesterol, you won’t feel guilty feasting on your favourites when you cook in Kaizer White Sesame Oil.

The massage oil that detoxifies skin
Did you know that Sesame oil is an outstanding massage oil with remarkable properties? The anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial compounds in Kaizer White Sesame Oil cleanse the skin and moisturise it at the same time. High amounts of vitamin E in sesame oil quickly heal small skin abrasions.

Sesame oil has the power to block as much as 30% of UV rays. That makes it an effective anti-ageing natural serum for the skin.10

Preparing food with sesame oil

Sesame oil is a must in your short list of cooking oils. The mildly nutty taste adds a deeply satisfying flavour to sizzling stir-fries, baked goods, and breads.

Whisk into dressings or drizzle on prepared foods for sensual sensory experience.

Suggested use

Temperature: Medium to high heat. The smoke point is 175°C.
Shelf Life: Best used within 6 months of opening. Unopened, best kept for 24 months.
