This sesame oil is our 'Signature Dish'! PUVI means Earth, a reminder of the soil we so value. The product comes from a family-run business that's been in agriculture for centuries. We have been making our own oils for personal consumption for nearly 200 years now. The result of methods fine-tuned over all these years is now in a bottle for you. Puvi cold pressed sesame oil is less dense, not too pungent, smoother than others while still being potent. The oil is unrefined and naturally clarified. This keeps nutrients intact. The oil may appear a bit cloudy or have tiny sediments at the bottom of bottle; but it is not a cause of concern.
A good sesame oil’s difference will be seen when you do oil pulling (gargle it in the mouth), it would not solidify in the mouth and would start to become thinner after a minute. Also, it won’t be overpoweringly pungent but would start releasing a rich sesame aroma in the mouth after a minute. During body massage you can find your hand gliding in perfect viscosity – not too thick nor too thin. It will smell good after application and exposure to air.
This is not a mass production oil, it's a really pure handcrafted oil made for discerning customers who appreciate quality. We don’t aim to make price competitive cheap oil, but to give value by reducing unwanted expenses. If you find it expensive, it's not because of our margins. It's what it costs to get a quality product to your doorstep across the country.
We maintain an all-natural production process and don’t standardise our oils using artificial colours or essences. There may be a minor difference in aroma and colour across batches. Foaming/Frothing can happen during deep frying in any cold pressed, raw oil. It's because of excessive moisture in food and oil heat. Try frying a small ball of tamarind first to prevent frothing.
