About

Sesame seeds are sometimes added to breads, including bagels and the tops of hamburger buns.

Sesame seeds may be baked into crackers, often in the form of sticks. Sesame seeds are also sprinkled onto some sushi style foods.

Whole seeds are found in many salads and baked snacks as well in Japan.

The seeds are exceptionally rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, and calcium (90 mg per tablespoon for un-hulled seeds, 10 mg for hulled), and contain vitamin B (thiamine) and vitamin E.

The nutrients of sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverized before consumption, as in tahini. Sesame seeds contain a high amount of the anti-nutrient phytic acid.
