Neither is *truly* raw, or in other words, really pure.
Rice vinegar is fermented.
Sesame oil is usually toasted, althought they do sell untoasted sesame oil.
I think it would be better to call it 'not heated' it at least if it was cold-pressed during processing. Then you could call it uncooked. However it might not be such a big deal if you are already using dehydrated recipes and frozen fruits/veggies in your diet presently.

Hey- they have raw cold pressed sesame oil! You would most likely have to order it online, unless you lived near a variety of asian stores.
Check out this site. They sell it, and there are a few others.
"Organic cold pressed sesame seed oil has been extracted simply by squeezing the seeds in a big press. The process is not as efficient as using heat and hexane, but the oil remaining from organic cold pressed seeds, nuts or vegetables has no trace farm chemicals, no hexane molecules, no poisonous trans fatty acids. "
"RAW ORGANIC SESAME OIL
Description: This hard to find product we make available for those who want the best oil for internal consumption. It is organic, cold-pressed oil with all the enzymes and natural components mother nature intended for oil we take into our bodies. Not only is it the best oil for salads and to put on raw or cooked vegetables, but taken internally (two teaspoons a day) it provides the recommended daily helping of natural Vitamin E (10mg per 10g of oil) as well as oleic acid which has been found in Australian medical studies to significantly reduce serum cholesterol"

Thank you so much for the information. I do live around Asian stores and now I am armed and dangerous ;)
