Black sesame seeds are not hulled, which gives them a bolder, and less sweet flavour and a slightly crunchier texture. Sesame seeds are used in baked goods and sweet and savoury dishes throughout the world. In their raw state, sesame seeds are pleasant but quite bland; toasted, they become intensely nutty and rich. An important factor in choosing between white and black sesame is appearance – the contrast between pale foods and black sesame seeds is lovely. Sesame is high in healthy fats, calcium, protein and anti-oxidants.

Their raw form provides a milder taste, while toasting them unveils a deep, aromatic intensity. Add them to salads, blend them into smoothies, or incorporate them into your favorite baked goods. The unique appearance of these seeds also adds visual allure, creating stunning presentations when paired with paler foods.
