The Traditional Process of Wood Pressing Sesame Oil: A Time-Honored Craft Preserved by Farms Native


Wood pressing is a traditional method of extracting sesame oil that has been practiced for centuries. This age-old process involves using wooden presses to extract oil from sesame seeds, resulting in a rich and flavorful oil that embodies authenticity. In this blog post, we will delve into the traditional process of wood pressing sesame oil, exploring the meticulous steps involved. Additionally, we will highlight Farms Native, a trusted provider of wood pressed sesame oil, and their dedication to preserving this time-honored craft.

Unveiling the Essence of Wood Pressing Sesame Oil

Wood pressing sesame oil is more than just a method of extraction—it is a craft deeply rooted in tradition and craftsmanship. This process honors the natural properties of sesame seeds and yields an oil with unparalleled flavor and authenticity.

Step-by-Step Process of Wood Pressing Sesame Oil

Seed Selection: Farms Native carefully selects premium sesame seeds, ensuring they are of the highest quality. The seeds undergo meticulous sorting to remove impurities and ensure only the best seeds are used.

Drying: The selected sesame seeds are spread out to dry naturally under the sun. This step ensures that the seeds are free from excess moisture, which could affect the quality of the oil.

Roasting: The dried sesame seeds are gently roasted to enhance their flavor. This process contributes to the characteristic nutty aroma and rich taste of the final oil.

Grinding: The roasted sesame seeds are fed into a traditional wooden press. A wooden pestle, operated manually or with the help of a mechanical lever, applies pressure to crush the seeds and extract the oil. Farms Native upholds the traditional wooden pressing method, preserving the authenticity of the oil.

Filtering: The extracted oil undergoes filtration to remove any impurities or sediments. This step ensures the oil’s clarity and purity.

Settling: The filtered oil is allowed to settle in containers, allowing any remaining impurities to separate and settle at the bottom. This helps in achieving a pristine final product.

Packaging: The pure wood pressed sesame oil is carefully packaged to preserve its freshness and flavor. Farms Native takes pride in packaging their oil in a way that maintains its quality until it reaches the consumers.
