Sesame oil (also known as gingelly oil or til oil) is an edible vegetable oil derived from sesame seeds. Besides being used as cooking oil in South India, it is often used as a flavour enhancer in Chinese, Japanese, Korean and to a lesser extent South-East Asian Cuisine.
The oil from this nutrient rich seed is popular in alternative medicine - from traditional massages and treatments to modern day fads. Ancient Indian medical recorded the usage of sesame oil to reduce stress related symptoms and on-going research indicates that the rich presence of anti-oxidants and poly-unsaturated fats in sesame oil could help in controlling blood pressure. This popular oil is one of the earliest known crop-based oils in Asia but modern worldwide mass production continues to be limited till today due to inefficient manual harvesting processes.
