#1667: Deshome Aloe Thin Noodles With Camellia Oil Vegetable Sauce Flavor

Camelia oil – this is a new thing to me. I was curious – why camelia oil? Wikipedia had this to say:

Tea seed oil (also known as Tea Oil Camellia or oil-seed Camellia) is an edible, pale amber-green fixed oil with a sweet, herbal aroma. It is cold-pressed mainly from the seeds of Camellia sinensis.

With its high smoke point (252°C, 485°F), tea seed oil is the main cooking oil in some of the southern provinces of China, such as Hunan—roughly one-seventh of the country’s population.

Tea seed oil resembles olive oil and grape seed oil in its excellent storage qualities[citation needed] and low content of saturated fat. Monounsaturated oleic acid may comprise up to 88 percent of the fatty acids. It is high in vitamin E and other antioxidants and contains no natural trans fats.

Tea seed oil is used in salad dressings, dips, marinades and sauces, for sautéing, stir frying and frying and in margarine production.

Here’s the back of the package, sans sticker (click image to enlarge). Says it is vegetarian on the front. To prepare, add noodles to a pot of boiling water and cook for 3-4 minutes. In a bowl, add sachet contents along with 1-2 spoonfuls of water and stir. Drain noodles and combine with sauce. Enjoy!

These noodles are made with aloe and are sun dried.

The vegetable sauce.

Has a very nice vegetable scent.

The camelia oil.

Definitely aromatic – pleasantly so.

Finished (click image to enlarge). Added a little spring onion. The noodles have a very light and happy texture to them – soft and springy. There’s quite a lot of them, too! The flavor is delicately balanced. Camellia oil is definitely not overwhelming and gives a nice slick feel to the noodles and the vegetable sauce has a nice veggie taste which has a light taste as well. Everything mingled just right in this one. 5.0 out of 5.0 stars. EAN bar code 4716873922511.
