Black Sesame Seeds 1 LB. Bag
Black sesame seeds are derived from the same plant as white sesame seeds, however, they are left unhulled for optimal nutritional value. Unhulled or Black Sesame Seeds are oil-rich seeds that grow in pods on the Sesamum indicum plant and are produced with the outer, edible husk intact.
Sesame seeds are high in fiber and have many health benefits. They have been used in folk medicine for thousands of years to protect against heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. Black sesame seeds are especially beneficial for bone health due to their high calcium content and have been said to slow down the appearance of grey hair. A serving is about three tablespoons per day to gain healing benefits. Use black sesame seeds as a nice added touch to salads, steamed vegetable, noodle dishes and homemade bread, and numerous dessert recipes. Soaking, roasting, or sprouting sesame seeds improves the absorption of their vital minerals.
