Description

Organic Hulled Sesame Seeds are packed with nutrients.

Organic Hulled Sesame Seeds are milled to remove the outer hull, leaving the characteristic white centre.  Hulled Sesame seeds are popular across the globe and can be used to make tahini which is a popular ingredient in a range of dishes from North Africa, Turkey and Greece.

These seeds have a really impressive range of nutrients and are a popular choice in plant based diets.  One 30g serving is high in copper, selenium and a source of Thiamin (B1), Folate, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc.

Although they are small, sesame seeds pack a powerful punch and are used in Asia as a garnish and in delicious desserts.  You may have been lucky enough to try halva which is a sesame based treat from the Middle East – why not try making your own?

If you like experimenting with plant milks then try making sesame milk for an alternative to dairy.

We also stock organic black sesame seeds which have a more intense flavour and organic natural sesame seeds which still contain the outer hull.

Origin: India

Allergen Information: Packed on premises that handle gluten, tree nuts, soya, peanuts.
