Black sesame seeds are white sesame seeds wtih their nutritious black hulls. Black sesame adds calcium, magnesium, iron to sesame's already powerful antioxidants and phytosterols, which help strengthen the immune system, lower cholesterol, and provide a nutritious source of plant protein.
Hailing from the Indian Spice Islands, sesame seeds have been part of the human diet since before recorded history. Assyrian tablets tell tales of gods who drank sesame wine and woke the next day to create the earth. “Open sesame” reflects the magical way in which sesame seed pods open at the moment they ripen. Ancient Egyptians used sesame seeds as medicine, and prescribed sesame oil in purification rituals. We love topping our kitchari and dahl with a sprinkle of these colorful seeds to add flavor that also boosts nutrition.
