Black Sesame Seed:

What is it?

Frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use comes from ancient Egypt.
 
Black sesame seeds (Sesamum Indicum L) are similar to the more common white sesame seeds. Black sesame seeds are not hulled, brown (golden) sesame seeds retain their hulls too, and the white seeds are hulled which exposes their true seed color. Lighter colored sesame seeds are used more in the West and in the Middle East, and the black sesame seeds are more popular in Far East cuisine. White and black sesame seeds can be used together for an attractive accent to any meal. Sesame seeds are rich in vitamins and minerals and offer several health related benefits. Black sesame seeds contain about 60% more calcium than hulled sesame seeds.
 

What could it do for me?

Not only are sesame seeds an excellent source of copper and a very good source of manganese, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc, molybdenum, selenium, and dietary fiber. In addition to these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect in humans, and to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies in animals. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage.
 

What can I do with it?

Sesame seeds can be eaten whole, ground into sesame paste which is called Tahini or sprouted. 
The whole seeds can also be used raw or roasted in muesli/granola, salads or baked goods. 
The oil can be used in salads, smoothies etc and is exceptionally resistant to rancidity.
 

How do I store it ?

Sesame seed is best kept in an airtight container in your pantry or in the freezer where it will keep for many months.
