Sesame Seeds Black
Black sesame seeds are small, tear-shaped seeds derived from the Sesamum indicum plant. Unlike their white counterparts, black sesame seeds have a rich, earthy flavor with a slightly bitter undertone. These seeds are highly nutritious, containing essential fatty acids, protein, dietary fiber, and a variety of minerals, including calcium, iron, and magnesium. Black sesame seeds are often used in Asian cuisine, both in sweet and savory dishes. They are commonly sprinkled on salads, stir-fries, sushi, and baked goods, adding a striking visual contrast and a nutty taste. In addition to their culinary uses, black sesame seeds are also valued for their potential health benefits and are regarded for their antioxidant properties.
