Black Sesame Seeds
What is it?
Black sesame seeds are unhulled, small, flat, oily seeds that are known for being rich in nutrients that support optimal health, and regularly eating them have specific high-nutritional benefits.
What makes it unique?
One reason why black sesame seeds could be so beneficial to health is due to the seeds’ effects on oxidative stress, particularly for people who are living with a chronic disease. It’s a healthy ingredient that can be added as a garnish to almost any dish.

Personal Wellness Benefits
- Rich in antioxidants
All sesame seeds contain antioxidants and healthy plant chemicals, but black sesame seeds appear to be a particularly rich source. Antioxidants are substances that play an important role in preventing or slowing different types of cell damage in your body.
- Contains anti-aging properties
Black sesame seeds are rich in vitamin B and iron, and most people who have a vitamin B or iron deficiency show symptoms like hair turning gray, hearing loss and memory loss, all of which are the indicators of aging.
- Decreases risk of cancer
The sesamin found in sesame seeds is found to protect the liver against the damage caused by free radicals in the body. Also, the seeds are rich in fiber, lignans, and phytochemicals, that can protect you against the development of colon cancer.
- Stabilizes blood pressure
Black sesame seeds are rich in magnesium that helps prevent hypertension. Polyunsaturated fats and the compound sesamin present in sesame oil are known to keep blood pressure levels in check.

- What’s the difference between black and white sesame seeds?
Black or other colored sesame seeds have been left whole with the outer hull of the shell intact while pure white sesame seeds have had the hull removed. In addition to containing more nutrients, black sesame seeds have a stronger flavor and more crunch than white sesame seeds that have had their outer hull removed.
