Sesame Seeds Toasted




Upon toasting, white sesame seeds acquire a nutty taste.

Other Common Names

Benne, Gingelly, Golden Sesame, White Sesame. Botanical Name: (Sesamum indicum)

Description & Use

Sesame Seeds burst forth from the ripe seed-pods of the sesame plant with a shattering explosion, hence the term “open sesame”! Black and Golden Sesame Seeds are the un-hulled seeds which may be either black or golden brown. White Sesame Seeds are hulled seeds and are the most popular type to use in cooking.

When baked or toasted, Sesame Seeds acquire a delicious nutty, crunchy taste, which makes them popular on biscuits and breads and even sprinkled over ice cream instead of chopped nuts.

Produce of Mexico, toasted and packed in Australia.

Toasted sesame seeds add a delicious nutty flavour to fresh vegetable stir-frys such as this. Any number of fresh vegetables and even bean sprouts can be used.
