INFRARED-ROASTED SESAME SEEDS In addition to the nutritional benefits of white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds are thought to be especially beneficial to hair health. Indeed, many Korean women swear by black sesame seeds to keep gray hair at bay.
Like those used in the oils, these seeds have been carefully toasted by infrared ray, so that they are fully and evenly cooked, inside and out, without being burnt (as can happen with traditional high heat). The result is a deliciously nutty seed, without any bitterness, that is tasty as-is.
Although black sesame seeds have an even stronger nutty flavor than the white variety, they are a good substitute for whole sesame seeds in virtually any recipe. We love grinding these up and eating them with tofu, braised spinach and sesame oil; we also hear they make an excellent addition to dessert.

Sesame seed One of the oldest seed crops in the world, sesame seeds are rich in vitamins, minerals, and natural oils. Sesame is believed to improve blood circulation and metabolism, as well as aid in heart, bone, skin and hair health. It likewise contains lignans to aid in cancer prevention.
Unlike white sesame, black sesame does not have its hull removed, and so has a fuller flavor.
