Sesame seeds

Printer-Friendly Format

Sesame seeds are small and delicate with a nutty taste and crunch. They are often used in Asian dishes or used to make a paste called tahini. A unique feature of their oil is that it is exceptionally resistant to rancidity.

Sesame seeds are easily added to the diet by sprinkling them onto steamed vegetables, salads, or into main dishes. They can also be added to the batter of homemade breads, muffins, or cookies.

Nutritional incentives for adding sesame seeds to your diet include the fact that they are a very good source of the trace minerals copper and manganese, as well as a good source of magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, and zinc.

Additionally, they are a good source of dietary fiber and monounsaturated fats.
