Sesame Seed Oil


#1

Hey guys, I just started using sesame seed oil for cooking and just happen to love the taste and prefer it to olive oil.

Just did a quick research on it, and theres plenty of talk about sesamin being a fat loss aid, and understand that sesame oil contains some amount of it.

Does anyone here use sesame oil exclusively for cooking/salads/shakes?

I just read the fat content and its 15g of fat per table spoon and got a little concerned.

Any input would be helpful. Thanks.

Here is a great article about oil by John Meadows:

Sesame is mentioned on the 2nd page under, "The Crappy Eight."
