Sesame Seeds


Sesame seeds may be tiny, but they have huge health benefits. They were worth their weight in gold during the Middle Ages, and for many good reasons. Sesame Seeds can be sprinkled on top of your bread dough before cooking to add a lovely flavour to the crust. Use on your bread, French sticks and rolls or to make tahini. They are full of protein, help prevent diabetes, reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, good for digestion, boost heart health, help lessen anxiety, relieve arthritis and encourage bone health.

Sesame plants are the oldest known plant species to be grown primarily for the seeds and oils rather than their leaves, fruits or vegetables. Sesame seeds contain up to 60 percent oil and 20 percent protein, making them a high source of both essential fatty acids and amino acids. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, and they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fibre.
