What is the difference between TAATAS’ Gingelly oil and Sesame Oil?
TAATAS’ Sesame and Gingelly oil both are from the same parent seed, the difference is in the processing of the seed before extraction of these oils. The yellow color of the Sesame oil is because the oil is extracted from raw sesame seed (non-roasted) whereas Gingelly oil is also from raw seed but using other processes which makes the temperature go a little higher than the first process, yielding the amber color.
Third variation from the seeds is where the sesame seed is roasted and then oil is extracted from it, yielding a dark brown color. All the three variations are from same seed; however, it is the “process” that makes these variants.
Based on the same, these 3 variants have 3 different uses in the kitchen: Unroasted Sesame oil has a high smoke point, and can be used
for deep frying, stir frying and food flavoring. Similarly, gingelly oil has a low smoke point, and can be used for stir frying which brings out its flavor.
However, what is special with TAATAS’ Roasted Sesame oil is that it has a very low smoke point, and can be used raw for flavor enhancing, and could be used even as a dressing oil for salads and dry curries.
What is the Health Benefits of TAATAS’ Sesame Oil?
It is good for your heart:
A diet rich in unsaturated fats is good for heart health. Sesame oil comprises 82% unsaturated fatty acids. In particular, it’s rich in omega-6 fatty acids. Omega-6 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that is essential to your diet and plays an important role in heart disease prevention. In fact, it may lower your cholesterol levels when used in place of oils high in saturated fats.
TAATAS’ Sesame oil may support healthy blood sugar regulation, which is especially important for people with diabetes. Studies have showed that a 6% sesame oil diet for 42 days resulted in significant reductions in blood sugar.
Sesame oil may even play a role in long-term blood sugar regulation:
Studies have found that taking sesame oil for 90 days significantly reduced fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c), compared with a placebo group. HbA1c levels are an indicator of long-term blood sugar control.
Helps in Rheumatoid Arthritis:
TAATAS’ sesame seeds are a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals. They are loaded with copper, zinc, magnesium, iron and calcium. While sesame oil may not contain as much nutrients as the seeds because some amounts of it are lost during the extraction process, they still retain most beneficial properties. It is particularly known for its zinc and copper contents, which help in the production of red blood cells, blood circulation and metabolism. Copper is also known for its anti-inflammatory properties, and helps reduce arthritis pain, swelling of joints and strengthens the bones.
Lowers Blood Pressure:
Researchers believed that sesame oil was used commonly in cooking during the ancient times. According to a study by an Indian researcher from Annamalai University and published in Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine, “Sesame oil as edible oil lowers blood pressure, decreases lipid peroxidation, and increases antioxidant status in hypertensive patients.”
