Black Sesame Seeds
Ingredients: 100% Black sesame seeds from "Sesamum indicum".
Black sesame seeds are an especially rich source of macro minerals and trace minerals. Your body requires trace minerals only in small quantity, while macro minerals are required in larger quantities.
A higher intake of macro minerals like calcium and magnesium is associated with improved heart disease risk factors, particularly high blood pressure.
Some of the trace minerals in black sesame seeds — in particular iron, copper, and manganese — are important for regulating your metabolism, cell functioning, and immune system, even as the circulation of oxygen throughout your body, among other activities.
Because more than half of a sesame seed is composed of oil, sesame seeds are also a good source of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
The most recent scientific evidence suggests that replacing foods high in saturated fats with foods high in unsaturated fats may lower your risk of heart disease.
Black sesame seeds contain many important trace and macro minerals, as well as healthy fats that may help lower your risk of heart disease.

How to use black sesame seeds:
The seeds are incredibly versatile when it comes to their culinary uses. They can easily be sprinkled onto salads, vegetables, and noodle and rice dishes. The seeds can even be used in baked goods or as a crunchy coating for fish.
Black sesame seeds can easily be processed into a milk or tahini paste, and black sesame seed oil can be used just as any other oil would be.
Black sesame seeds extract can also be purchased as an oil or supplement in capsule form. There are currently no recommendations regarding how much black sesame seed extract to take, so it’s best to check with your healthcare provider before taking these supplements.
Although black sesame seeds are generally considered safe for most people, some may experience an allergic reaction. Therefore, it’s best to use caution if it’s your first time cooking with black sesame seeds.
Some evidence supports the use of black sesame seeds to improve blood pressure and decrease oxidation in the body.
However, more research is needed to better understand the quantity and form of black sesame that’s needed to generate these effects.
Still, black sesame seeds are safe for most people without sesame allergies, and they make a delicious addition to many meals.
