Sesame oil is one of the hidden treasures of the Japanese pantry. It’s distinguished, nutty flavor is used in everything from stir frying earthy vegetables such asgobo to delicately dressing blanched spinach. 

For over 150 years, Iwai has been using traditional techniques to produce their sesame oil. Their sesame seeds are carefully roasted before being pressed twice. The first press produces the finest oil called ichiban shibori, followed by a second press which extracts the remaining oil. The oil is then filtered to remove any impurities. This genuine sesame oil is made from carefully selected withe sesame seeds giving it a light color finish. It is rich in flavor and aroma, with a nutty, caramel taste.
