Recently there have been many advertisement on cheap sesame coconut and peanut oil from India being manufactured in India and distributed here. I am sure many of you would have started comparing pricing. They have invested a lot in commercial advertisement as well. Some of my customers have started questioning me on why my oil is priced higher.
I am sorry to inform you I have tried my best to lower my price. My sesame oil which was RM110 before is now RM80. I buy pure A grade seed only, to put in my cold pressed machine. I do not add low quality or mixed brown sesame seed which is cheap by RM5 perkg. I do not add sesame dust into the seed, which is common in india, I do not add any jaggery or indian sugar into my oil as well. Although it is jaggery it is still a kind of sweet. and I do not pack my oil in cheap plastic bottles.
I have quoted an article below from a website on the importance of oil storage container. So those in doubt pls read below:
Never buy or store your oil in a plastic container. A plastic container can easily absorb PVCs – which are polyvinyl chlorides. A range of toxic chemicals – plasticizers – may have been added to the plastic containers. These chemicals, known as phthalates and adipates, can leak from PVC and into your oil.
