Organic Toasted Black Sesame Seeds
Our toasted organic black sesame seeds offer a rich source of nutrition as well as being super delicious.
Black sesame seeds have the same tiny tear-drop shape as white sesame seeds but have a different taste and nutritional profile. They have a slightly bitter but rich nutty flavour and are more suited to savoury dishes.
Black sesame seeds are one of the oldest crops, thought to have been domesticated more than 3000 years ago and have been highly revered for their valuable health promoting oil and other nutrients.
In much the same way as the white sesame seed, they are traditionally used in baking breads and savoury pastries, but can be used very creatively in salads and desserts also. We recommend toasting your black sesame seeds along with your favourite spices to make your own toasted seed sprinkle to add to meats, tofu or salads. Using white sesame seeds here along with the black adds an interesting colour contrasting effect.
