Small seeds, big taste! The tiny white seed with a big, rich nutty flavour and high oil content, sesame seeds are frequently used as a topping for breads such as bagels, hamburger and hotdog buns, or in crackers.
They are used in salads, vegetable dishes and sweets in many Asian cuisines including Japan and India. When roasted and pressed, they produce a very flavourful oil used as a condiment in Chinese and Japanese cooking.
Sesame seeds are used to make sweets such as brittles or sweet pastes such as halva.
