Idhayam Seasame (Gingelly Oil ) Oil 2 Ltrs
Sesame oil is not only good for health, it has very specific properties that alleviate certain conditions, sometimes even curing them. It has also been found to have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which make it a good anti-atherogenic agent. Indias largest and best known brand of sesame oil is Idhayam.
This is oil which has not been treated or refined in any way and is produced from commercially grown, non-organic sesame seeds. Gingelly oil is high in anti-oxidants and the unrefined variety has the highest quantity of antioxidants of all. Therefore, unrefined gingelly oil is least prone to getting spoilt or rancid. This type of gingelly oil has a light golden amber colour and the characteristic ‘nutty’ flavour. It has a high smoke point and is most suitable for stir frying. Besides anti-oxidants, unrefined gingelly oil also has a good number of minerals such as magnesium, copper, calcium and vitamin B6 as well.
