Elevate your dishes with Seowondangs’ premium Raw Perilla Oil from the clean, pristine area and local farmers from Gangwon-do, Korea. Raw perilla oil means the seeds have not been toasted which creates a lighter, more subtle taste than regular perilla oil. Its distinctive nutty, earthy flavor is highly versatile for a variety of dishes as either a base oil or finishing oil. 

Seowondang uses only carefully selected 100% high-quality Korean perilla seeds from the perilla plants grown in Gangwon-do using traditional, eco-friendly techniques to protect nature and their customer’s health. Local Korean farmers cultivate the perilla seeds in the clean air and rich soil of Gangwon-do.

Once the Gangwon-do perilla seeds are harvested, they go through an extremely thorough washing process to clean all the dust, soil, and other foreign substances not visible to the naked eye. While a lot more oil can be milked without this process, the level of foreign substances will obviously be much higher and you will risk ingesting harmful ingredients. That is why Seowondang repeats the same meticulous process to achieve its high standard of hygiene and freshness every time. 

By using over 30 years of experience on pressing perilla seeds for oil, Seowondang perilla oil achieves beautiful light, yet subtle note of delicious nutty and earthy flavor that adds a whole new element of flavor to any dish. Once you try it and cook with it, Seowondang is confident you will nod with approval!
