Ingredients: Organic Raw Sprouted "Hulled" Sesame Seeds
-Processed in a peanut-free, dairy-free, and soy-free facility
Sesame seeds are more than a garnish for bagels-- they’re a treasure trove of nutrients that strengthen our skin, bones, and immune system. Our raw, organic sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, molybdenum, and selenium. They’re also a good source of fiber. Sesame seeds contain more cholesterol-lowering phytosterols than any other nut or seed. They even have their own unique antioxidants, sesamin and sesamolin, which lower blood pressure.
Sure, go ahead and use them as a garnish if you must, but don’t be afraid to think outside the bagel. Enjoy sesame seeds’ unique nutty flavor in granola, breads, salads, stir-fry, noodles, or raw and baked desserts from halvah to sesame brittle.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our sesame seeds. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful seed. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
FUN FACT! Ever wondered where the saying “open sesame” came from? It was first used in One Thousand and One Nights as the password for a band of thieves to enter a secret cave of treasure. Why? Sesame’s pods burst open suddenly, revealing neat rows of nutritious seeds.
