About

Organic black sesame seeds are similar to the white sesame seeds, but are not hulled and have a stronger flavour and aroma. Black sesame seeds have a rich nutty flavour.

Served Best

A delicious addition to curries or simply eaten straight from the pack, for a protein- rich snack! For an eye-catching, nutritious addition, sprinkle black sesame seeds to your favourite salad or stir-fry. Black sesame seeds are often used in Asian cooking and are also great for baking.

Benefits

Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also high in calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fibre. In addition to these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibres called lignans and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect in humans and to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies in animals. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage.
