Why is sesame oil not suitable for cooking?

sesame oil for cooking

Sesame oil has many functions. It can be used for cold dishes, soups, and fillings. It is a delicious “catalyst” that many families cannot do without. But sesame oil is not suitable for cooking, why? Next, listen to the explanations and suggestions from experts. In daily life, how should we purchase, eat and store sesame oil?

Ⅰ. Classification of sesame oil

1. Sesame oil-Traditional method

After the sesame seeds are roasted and stone-milled, the finished sesame oil is produced by the water substitution method. It has a very strong fragrance and is generally used as a seasoning oil for cold salad.

2. Sesame oil-Hydraulic oil press machine

It usually refers to the finished sesame oil produced by pressing the sesame seeds after roasting. Its fragrance is slightly lighter than that of small ground sesame oil, and its color is also relatively lighter. This kind of sesame oil is not only used as a seasoning for cold salad, but also used for cooking in some places.

Ⅱ. Why not use sesame oil for cooking?

1.Benefits of Sesame Oil

Sesame oil has a strong fragrance, and when used for cooking, it will cover up the original taste of the dishes, so that it “overwhelms the guest”. At the same time, some sesame oil, especially small-ground sesame oil, because the raw materials themselves have been fried at high temperature, may have a slight burnt smell when the cooking is heated, which will affect the taste of the dishes.

Moreover, the high temperature during cooking will destroy the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E in sesame oil, resulting in a decrease in nutritional value. It will also produce harmful oxidized fats and free radicals, which will affect the digestion and absorption of the human body.

2.The role of sesame oil.

In addition, although sesame oil has the effect of lubricating the intestinal tract, due to the high oil content, excessive intake may increase the burden on the gastrointestinal tract, especially for people with severe diarrhea. It is worth noting that people who are allergic to sesame should avoid taking sesame oil, especially for infants and young children, so as not to induce allergic reactions in the body. Therefore, eating in moderation is the best choice.

Ⅲ. How to choose the good sesame oil?

1. Read the label on the bottle

Pay attention to check the ingredient list, oil grade, implementation standard, manufacturer, production license number, production date and shelf life and other identification information. It should be emphasized that sesame oil must be labeled with sesame oil as the only ingredient, or sesame as raw material, and cannot contain other oils or other types of vegetable oil.

2. Observe the color

Small milled sesame oil is light red or orange red; sesame oil is lighter than small milled sesame oil, with yellow in the red; and edible vegetable blend oil containing sesame oil may be lighter in color.

3. Smell

Sesame oil has a pure and strong fragrance, while the edible vegetable blend oil containing sesame oil has a lighter fragrance and has other oily smells.

4. Buy small bottles

When buying, pay attention to the shelf life, which is usually 18 months. Try to buy sesame oil in small packages and eat it up in a short time.

Ⅳ. How to Store Sesame Oil?

Store at room temperature, keep the bottle tightly sealed and avoid direct sunlight and high temperature. Because sesame oil is very sensitive to oxygen and light, these environmental factors can quickly deteriorate its quality, affecting taste and aroma.

In short, although sesame oil can improve the taste of dishes and bring a strong aroma as a condiment, you should also pay attention to the amount when eating to avoid eating too much at one time. And you should pay special attention when storing, because sesame oil is a perishable substance. Once you find abnormal smell, black color, etc. during storage, please stop using it immediately and discard the residue.
