    Do black sesame seeds have shells?

    Our black sesame seeds are the entire raw seed, including the ‘shell’. The shell of these seeds is edible and gives them a crunchier texture and stronger flavor.

    Why eat black sesame seeds?

    For flavor and nutrients of course! The nutrients of the sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverized before consumption, like with tahini. These seeds contain microminerals like calcium and magnesium, as well as trace minerals that can help regulate your metabolism. In some cases, these seeds are recommended to help reduce blood cholesterol and promote bowel movements.

    Are black sesame seeds naturally dark in color?

    Yes, our black sesame seeds are naturally black in color; no substance is added to color them. Our supplier actually runs the seeds through a machine called a Color Sortex Machine that sorts the seeds for consistent size and color, removing all impurities.

    Can I sprout these seeds?

    Yes! Before we purchase each batch of seeds we sample and test to make sure they sprout. We then also use these seeds for our cold-pressed oil process. To learn more please visit the black sesame seed oil product page – here.
