Wadaman sesame have been selecting and roasting the finest quality sesame seeds for 130 years. The roasting technique has been overseen by fourth-generation master roaster Etsuji Wada for the last 45 years. The reward for this lifetime of dedication is seeds of exceptional quality, with a plump seed that is perfectly primed for maximum flavour, pressing into the finest oil and milling into luxurious pastes.

While there is a general nutty flavour to sesame products that most people are familiar with, the profile can change dramatically depending on the colour of the seed. For example, black sesame has a deep, almost smoky flavour, gold sesame is very strong and white esame is lighter and sweeter.

Wadaman sesame oils are crafted with the lightest possible pressing. 5 litres of seeds are required to create 1 litre of oil and all oil is derived from the very first pressing. The expert roasting of the seeds using high, then low, then high temperatures, ensures the seeds are roasted to the very centre.

Sesame oil is used in dressings and vinaigrettes, meat marinades and with fish, tofu, sushi & sashimi. Used sparingly the best quality oils enhance flavour without overpowering. Just a light drizzle added after cooking and just before serving, will greatly enhance freshly steamed or fried vegetables.
