Black sesame seeds are not hulled, which gives them a bolder, and less sweet flavour and a slightly crunchier texture. Sesame seeds are used in baked goods and sweet and savoury dishes throughout the world. In their raw state, sesame seeds are pleasant but quite bland; toasted, they become intensely nutty and rich. An important factor in choosing between white and black sesame is appearance – the contrast between pale foods and black sesame seeds is lovely. Sesame is high in healthy fats, calcium, protein and anti-oxidants.
