Why so special?
It’s daunting to find a good mill that makes sesame oil and perilla oil in a trusted, traditional way. Chung-O is that one rare find.
Sprouting seeds and grains need a controlled environment with the “just right amount” of heat and humidity. Chung-O’s patented technology sprouts seeds and grains to a beautiful state. To get the most of deep flavor without losing antioxidants, the producer customized its roasting kiln. Sprouted seeds are roasted to nice golden brown color with deeper nuttiness.
Enjoy your bottle of roasted sesame oil and get all your flavor and nutrition fixed.
