Brown Sesame Seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma that is enhanced by toasting. They can be added to breads, cookies or stir-fries, or ground into a butter for tahini, hummus or the sweet Middle Eastern treat called halvah. Our Brown Sesame Seeds are an excellent source of calcium and contain 6 grams of protein per serving.

Details

Sesame seeds are admired all around the world for their slightly sweet, nutty flavor and aroma that is enhanced by toasting. In the Middle East, sesame seeds are ground into a paste called tahini and used in the savory dish, hummus and in sweet treats like halvah. In Asian cuisine, they are used in sushi rolls, stir-fries and salads, to name a few. And throughout Europe and America, sesame seeds are added to breads and other baked goods for a rustic, artisan touch and flavor. Sesame seeds are also highly valued for their high content of oil which contains essential fatty acids and is revered in some cultures for its healing properties. "Open sesame"—the famous phrase from the Arabian Nights‚Äîreflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seed pod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity.

Sesame seeds, an alkaline food, offer many nutritional benefits. They're an excellent source of zinc, manganese, magnesium, copper, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1 and dietary fiber. Sesame seeds also contain lignans, called sesamin and sesamolin, which can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

Brown sesame seeds can be added to vegetable dishes, salads, breads, rolls, buns and muffins—or use the entire package to make tahini (see recipe on back of package). With a fresh batch of tahini on hand, homemade hummus can be just minutes away! Or try using tahini in the cookie recipe on the back of the package for a scrumptious treat.

Delicious and healthy addiction to my smoothies and breakfast grains!
I had never purchased sesame seeds before. However, I just became a plantbased vegan and replaced all my feta cheese, steam, and eggs needs with Bob’s Red Mill grains, seeds, and legumes.

This was one of the seeds I bought.

I add them into my smoothies, amaranth breakfast, and even on my sandwich like this:
-
Walnuts, sesame seeds, hemp heart seeds, chia seeds, pumpkinseeds, sunflower seeds, flex seeds, and almonds mixed with smashed pear, honey, and lemon squeeze. Delicious on a piece of Vegan Bread!

I love these. I bought brown and white and mixed them in 1 jar together. Honestly, every product I bought from Bob I loooooooooove!

I posted all my food on my Instagram and YouTube.
Mixed nuts with honey, lemon, and sesame seeds. Yum!

Brown sesame seeds
Thank goodness for Bob's Red Mill mail order. When my local supplier (Whole Foods!!) stopped carrying brown sesame seeds, which I have been including in my home-made granola for over 40 years, I knew where to turn. Very convenient, though I actually prefer getting everything in one place at one time! If Whole Foods keeps going, discontinuing "whole foods", I'll be ordering everything for my granola from Bob's Red Mill.

Great Sesame
We buy the white sesame seeds and toast them ourselves in the toaster over. The flavor is more fragrant than buying the already toasted ones.

"Brown Sesame Seeds have a nutty, slightly sweet flavor and aroma that is enhanced by toasting." -- Does this mean they have already been roasted to enhance flavor, or that they are raw and toasting is a suggestion? I'm looking for raw seeds.

BEST ANSWER: This product is raw and not toasted.
