Seowondangs’ premium sesame seeds are grown from the fresh, pristine area of Gangwon-do, Korea. Roasted sesame seeds is the perfect item to finish off Korean dishes such as spicy rice cakes, gimbap, fish, meat, japchae - you name it!
Seowondang uses only carefully selected 100% high-quality Korean sesame seeds grown in Gangwon-do using traditional, eco-friendly techniques to protect nature and their customer’s health. Local Korean farmers cultivate the raw sesame seeds in the clean air and rich soil of Gangwon-do.
Once the Gangwon-do sesame seeds (which are 1.5 times more expensive than regular sesame 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 sesame seeds can be collected 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.
After washing, the seeds enter the most crucial step of the entire process: roasting, which is not not only done to removes moisture but also to determine the taste and flavor of each raw sesame seed. By using over 30 years of roasting experience on the perfect sesame seeds, Seowondang sesame seeds achieve that comforting roasted aroma and delicious nutty 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!
