Sesame oil “Kuki” (medium intensity) 170g


8,50 € tax incl.

Description: Kuki sesame oil is made using high quality black, golden and white sesame seeds that were processed following the producer’s own traditional method : The seeds are pressed and the extracted oil is left to stand for two weeks to a month before being filtered several times to remove any residue formed during the pressing process. This method gives Kuki sesame oil its beautiful amber color and unique flavor. With its medium intensity, this slightly bitter oil will go well with plenty of dishes. 

Flavor: This is a subtle sesame oil with a soft and round flavor, paired with subtle roasted notes on the finish.

Use: The subtle flavor of Kuki sesame oil goes well with Chinese and Japanese traditional cuisine. This oil will enhance the flavor of stir fried dishes, simmered dishes or broth. It is the perfect ingredient for seasoning marinated vegetables or a tuna tartar. Mixed with a bit of salt, this sesame oil will turn into the perfect dressing sauce for your salad.

The Kuki family has been established in Japan since the 16th century and was mainly known for its military exploits. A couple of centuries later, the family settled in Yokkaichi, a city situated in Mie prefecture, as merchants resolding products including salt from the city of Ako to the Kanto region. The Kuki family started producing canola oil in the 19th century, starting with growing rapeseed to then building a factory intended to produce oil. That is how the Kuki Sangyo company emerged. Yokkaichi city was known for its port, through which many products transited towards Edo, including the oil produced within the city. With the help of an English engineer, Kuki Sangyo managed to develop its production, but the shortage of raw materials necessary to the oil production led the company to shift towards other vegetable oils including sesame oil. This is how Kuki Sangyo concentrated its production on sesame oil by the start of the 1950s. The company has developed a quantity of sesame oil-based products to promote the consumption of this superfood. Enjoy the benefits of sesame thanks to Kuki Sangyo’s products at Umami Paris !
