Sesame Seeds, Black

These black seeds are best after slightly toasting for a minute to bring out the earthy, nutty flavor. Used often in Asian cooking for their taste, color and texture, they are commonly seen in sushi rolls, rice dishes and salads. Another great use for black sesame seeds is to encrust fish or pork before searing.

Some believe that chewing one spoonful of black sesame seeds each morning helps to maintain healthy skin.

You will also see black sesame seeds used in Middle Eastern cuisine on vegetables and breads. These seeds are high in protein and are often mixed with other seeds to form low sodium protein sprinkles for food dishes.
