Toasted Sesame Seed
Toasted sesame seeds add a wonderfully clean and nutty flavor to soups, salads, and even dessert. Also wonderful for texture, they are used in cuisine around the world. (
Sesamum indicum is a plant originally grown in parts of Africa and India, but now cultivated all over the world for its aromatic and oil-rich seeds harvested from its pods. Toasting the seeds draws out this oil, and provides a springy and uber addictive flavor.
White sesame seeds have a mild, nutty flavor, and are often used in Western and Middle Eastern dishes as a topping for breads and soups. (We recommend finding the sesame-heavy za'atar spice mixture as soon as possible, and quickly becoming best friends.)
Rich in antioxidants, vitamin E, and essential minerals like iron, magnesium, and calcium, it's no wonder these little guys figure so largely on taste buds around the world.

Use & Care
Seeds and spices are deceivingly delicate, so store in a cool, dry place, preferably away from a lot of natural light. For best flavor, use within one year.
Production & Design
Began as a mom and pop operation in Petaluma, California â€“ literally, with Mom and Dad growing herbs and trucking them to the farmer's market, Whole Spice evolved to bring that same level of freshness and hand-grown care to chefs and home kitchens all over. No chemicals or MSG here, Whole Spice have long been dedicated to spreading the gospel of good herbs and spices. They are also certified Kosher.
Harvested from the pods of the sesame plant, these seeds are dried, and then toasted to order in Northern California.
