Brown Sesame Seeds have a nutty taste and slightly sweet flavor and aroma that are enhanced by toasting. They can be added to breads, cookies or stir-fries, or ground into sesame paste for tahini or the sweet Middle Eastern treat called halvah. These unhulled sesame seeds are an excellent source of calcium and contain 6 grams of protein per serving.
Sesame seeds are familiar as the tiny seeds on hamburger buns—but did you know some people consider them a health food as well? Natural sesame seeds are an excellent source of calcium and fiber and a good source of iron. Raw or toasted sesame seeds also contain oleic acid, an unsaturated fat, as well as minerals like potassium, magnesium, manganese and more. The amino acid content is also high, making it a food that’s a source of plant-based protein. But beyond their potential health benefits, sesame seeds are delicious and versatile, whether you eat them raw or toasted.

Keep sesame seeds on hand to add crunch and flavor to your diet! Add a little soy sauce and some pantry staples and you can whip up an incredible sesame-ginger sauce in no time. Or roast the seeds and grind them to make a mellow sesame butter (tahini is made from raw sesame seeds) to use in sandwiches, smoothies, dip or as a topping for potatoes and veggies.

Brown sesame seeds can be added to all manner of food. Add sesame seeds 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 is just minutes away! Or try using tahini in the cookie recipe on our site for a scrumptious treat.

Sesame seeds were firs domesticated more than 3,000 years ago and has the highest oil content of any seed! It’s drought tolerant and grows in many tropical regions.
