White Sesame Seeds
Ingredients: 100% White sesame seeds from “Sesamum indicum”.
White 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 trace minerals in white 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.
White sesame seeds contain many essential trace and macro minerals, as well as healthy fats that may help lower your risk of heart disease.

How to use white 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 bake goods or as a crunchy coating for fish.
White 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.
White 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 white 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 white sesame seeds.
Some evidence supports the use of white 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 white sesame that’s needed to generate these effects.
Still, white sesame seeds are safe for most people without sesame allergies, and they make a delicious addition to many meals.
