Pure Ispica Sesame Seed Oil is obtained through cold-pressing of only Organic, Raw, Whole, and Italian Sesame Seeds. This yields a flavorful oil with a distinctive taste that retains its healthful properties. This is mainly due to the gentle processing method that never exceeds 40°C, the presence of the seed husk, the freshness of the harvest from last summer, and production carried out only upon order.
