The sesame seeds are yellowish-brown-white seeds that are small in size, and they are commonly found in Africa. Apart from Africa, there are also regions in India where these seeds grow. The sesame oil has a quite distinct flavour and a nutty taste that is healthier than other vegetable oils.

The colour of the sesame seed oil is golden yellow to yellowish-brown and is insoluble in water. The oil is rich in vitamins like Vitamin E and Vitamin K making it a healthy ingredient in the medical, cosmetic, and culinary industries.

Characterization of Physico-chemical and other Bioactive properties of Sesame Seed Oil Extracted By Cold-Pressed Method

Cooking oils are mostly derived from seeds, fruits and nuts. Generally oil from the seed is obtained by heating, crushing and refining of all the oil through hot extraction methods but cold pressing is known to be the best natural way to obtain fresh and healthy oils. In cold pressed extraction, seeds are pounded by an external force. It does not include any heating process. Because the oil is not expected to be heated, and it retains the essential nutrients, proteins and various bioactive compounds present in oils, making it a better oil for cooking than oils made by the heating process/hot press. Due to this reason, the present study aims to extract the cold pressed sesame oil from selected varieties released to assess the quality of oil with physicochemical parameters and bioactive compounds investigated.


Sesame is one of the most commonly eaten foods either seeds or oil. It is also an important component of many processed food products with its excellent flavour, aroma, taste and attractive colour. These qualities enable use in salads, food, and appetisers as well as in the production of margarine and cooking oils.

This present study was aimed at evaluating the effect of extraction methods on the physico-chemical properties, fatty acid composition in Sesame seed oil.



Oil extraction

Cold press method was used to extract oil from the sesame seed. After the extraction process, the oil was filtered to remove impurities and then kept in a glass bottle under 18 °C.

  7. Refractive Index-indicates the possible chances of rancidity development in oil. Higher the refractive index higher is the chances of spoilage due to oxidation.
  8. Saponificvation Value-is the number of milligrams of KOH required to neutralise the fatty acids resulting from the complete hydrolysis of 1g of fat.
  9. Unsaponifiable matter-are the substances in many oils and fats that are not tri-glycosides. These can be washed away because they are soluble in water.
  10. Peroxide Value-is a parameter specifying the content of oxygen as peroxide, especially hydroperoxide in a substance.
  11. Iodine Value- the iodine value is the amount of iodine in 100g of oil or fat.
  12. Fatty Acids-Sesame seed oil contains a few fatty acids such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid, linoleic acid, etc.
