Black sesame seeds are packed with nutrients that strengthen the skin, bones, and immune system. Black Sesame Tahini is high in vitamin E, calcium, iron, and magnesium, and it’s also a good source of zinc, Vitamin B1, molybdenum, selenium, copper, and manganese. Like many nuts and seeds, black sesame seeds contain phytosterols, which are proven to lower blood cholesterol levels-- but unique to sesame seeds is sesamol, a powerful antioxidant.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting 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.
We stone-grind our black sesame seeds slowly at low temperatures for the smoothest, most nutritious nut butter possible-- after all, that’s how nut butter was first made. Read more about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! Traditional Chinese medicine considers black sesame seeds good for hair health and overall body strength. Sweet black sesame soup is a popular breakfast in China.
