Sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) is probably one of the oldest cultivated oil plants in the world and possibly one of the healthiest foods on our planet!
It is a mere wonder that this small seed is packed with so many nutrients! Besides high amounts of healthy oil and protein, it is a source of Vitamin E that is responsible for protecting the valuable unsaturated fatty acids from oxidation acounting hence for the long shelf life of the sesame oil. No wonder that Sesame oil was the oil of choice in the chinese cuisine till recently.
Sesame also contains high amounts of the water soluble vitamins Folate and Niacin. Amoung the numerous functions of folate, you have probably heard of its vital role in tissue growth during pregnancy.
Sesame is a mineral and trace element power house with astonishingly high Calcium content. The high bioavailability of this mineral makes Sesame a great source of calcium for vegans and individuals with lactose intolerance. Calcium is not only good for maintaining normal bones and teeth, it is also vital for the normal muscle function, neurotransmission and for the normal function of the digestive enzymes.
Forget food supplements, our Black Sesame will provide you with the necessary Magnesium to ensure normal muscle function and electrolyte balance as well as normal protein synthesis and normal bones and teeth.
Furthermore, sesame is a good source of Iron, Zinc and Copper all important trace elements vital for the normal functioning of our body.
