Sesame seeds have been used in cuisine for thousands of years, and the healers of old included this incredibly nutritious ingredient in a great number of remedies. Today you can enjoy delicious Organic Sesame Seeds in a variety of different ways, and every meal with them will benefit your health in many respects.

Health Benefits

Sesame seeds, organic or otherwise, are incredibly rich in essential nutrients, which means they promote your general health and well-being. The most notable of their benefits include:

  • They give you calcium.
    As far as plant-based foods go, sesame seeds are one of the best natural sources of calcium. They are truly invaluable for vegans and vegetarians. Another great benefit of this particular food is that this type of calcium is easier for the body to process.
    This mineral is vital for maintaining bone health and strength as well as ensuring your hair and nails stay strong.
  • They are rich in antioxidants.
    Raw organic sesame seeds contain a variety of antioxidants that protect your body from the detrimental effects of free radical damage. Oxidation weakens every cell in your body and speeds up the process of natural aging. Antioxidants negate this damage to some extent and help you fight the flow of time. The effects are particularly noticeable on your skin as these elements contribute to reducing and preventing wrinkles.
  • They give you folic acid and niacin.
    Organic sesame seeds are rich in all B vitamins, but their content of folic acid and niacin are unusually high. The former is recommended during the pre-conception period and pregnancy itself as it reduces the risk of neural tube effects in newborns.
    Niacin is one of the reasons why organic sesame seeds are great for your heart as it reduces the levels of ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.
  • They provide you with a boost of minerals.
    Calcium isn’t the only mineral you get from eating sesame. These tiny seeds also contain high levels of zinc, selenium, magnesium, manganese, and iron. Each of these nutrients helps support different systems in the body.

Suggested Uses

Organic sesame seeds can be used in a significant number of culinary recipes. They will add a pleasant nutty flavor and crunchiness to any baked goods. You can also sprinkle them on salads, sandwiches, or desserts. Add a spoonful of seeds to your breakfast or post-workout smoothie to make it more nutritious.

Recipes

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. fresh broccoli florets (see trimming instructions)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce, gluten-free if needed
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

Description

  1. Preheat oven to 450F/220C.
  2. Cut broccoli into pieces about 2 inches long.
  3. Whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, and garlic.
  4. Arrange the broccoli in a single layer on baking sheet, coated well with mixture and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
  5. After 10 minutes, stir or turn broccoli pieces over and then continue roasting 5 minutes more, or until broccoli is tender-crisp and slightly browned on the edges.
  6. Serve hot.

Ingredients:

Salad:

  • 16 oz baby spinach
  • 1 cup almonds, toasted
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Sesame Seed Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp white sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp finely minced shallot
  • 2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 Tbsp poppy seeds (optional)

Description

  1. For the dressing:
    In a bowl or jar whisk together white wine vinegar, apple cider vinegar, and sugar until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in olive oil, honey, shallot, sesame seeds (your sesame seeds should look more golden than mine – I didn’t toast mine long enough) and optional poppy seeds until mixture is well blended.
  2. For the salad:
    Add spinach, almonds, and cranberries to a salad bowl. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss. Serve immediately after adding dressing.

  1. No rips or tears in fine condition’. Waiting for my new Vegan cookbook to use them; I’m a new vegan learning a new way to cook, I’m 82 yrs, old learning a new way to cook and eat.

  2. I have used these sesame seeds on top of several loaves of bread including my weekly challah. A lovely topping, fresh, baked nicely, no problems. Good purchase.

  3. Product arrived quickly & is as described. Be aware this is a TON of sesame seeds. If you are buying for the occasional recipe (I use it to make hummus), the 2 lb or 4 lb bag should suffice. I don’t know that I would buy this size again due to the quantity but I would definitely buy from Food To Live again for the quality.
