Sesame is rich in B vitamins, iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. The body can make more efficient use of these nutrients when the sesame is added to foods as a conventional ingredient and not just as a decorative element. Sesame is a source of fibre, which is of vital importance for our digestion [1 and 2].
The oil contained in the seeds is also very valuable. It contains up to 50% omega 6 fatty acids, also called linoleic acids. The oil is very good for the skin and hair. Sesame also contains lecithin, a fatlike substance enabling the oil in the sesame seeds to be optimally used by the body [1 to 3].
Our natural organic Fairtrade sesame is nutty and aromatic, ripening under the sunny skies of Uzbekistan. The grains are not peeled, nor do they undergo any similar processing steps. The seeds are unprocessed and very crunchy.
Origin and Production:
We source our organic Fairtrade natural sesame exclusively from Uzbekistan / Samarkand. We can be sure of meeting our high quality standards by purchasing our products exclusively from this place.
The sesame plants grow on fields near Samarkand. Large parts of the region are certified for organic and FAIRTRADE products, and are cultivated by the FAIRTRADE farmers living there.
The farmers are part of a large Fairtrade community made up of 3 groups, Dustkul Bogi, Turkiston Gulba and Turob Bobo. 1,000 farmers and their families belong to the community. By working with Fairtrade, the farmers can provide their families with a secure income and offer their children new opportunities.
After harvesting, the sesame grains are threshed out of the „ears“ and undergo multiple checks for quality and dryness. In case some of the seeds still aren’t dry enough, the drying process can be completed locally, using methods having a minimal impact on the product.
In Austria the seeds are pressure treated and laser cleaned in Austria. During the pressure process, the combination of pressure and time ensures that the product is completely free of pests. When undergoing several rounds of cleansing in the laser cleaning facility afterwards, the organic seeds are checked individually.
