Unlike black sesame seeds, white sesame seeds are hulled, which gives them a milder, sweeter flavour and a softer texture. Sesame seeds are used in baked goods and sweet and savoury dishes throughout the world. They are used whole, ground into a smooth or coarse paste for dishes such as hotensa goma-ai (spinach with sesame paste), dan dan noodles, and tahini (made from raw seeds) or Asian sesame paste (made from toasted seeds). In their raw state, sesame seeds are pleasant but quite bland; toasted, they become intensely nutty and rich. Sesame is high in healthy fats, calcium, protein and anti-oxidants.
