Product Description

Sesame Seeds Black

Black sesame seeds are small, flat, oily seeds that grow in the fruit pods of the Sesamum indicum plant, which has been cultivated for thousands of years. Sesame seeds grow in a variety of colors, including shades of black, brown, tan, gray, gold, and white. Black sesame seeds are primarily produced in Asia, although they’re quickly gaining popularity around the world.

Sesame Seeds Black Nutrition

Black sesame seeds are an especially rich source of macrominerals and trace minerals. Your body requires trace minerals only in small amounts, while macrominerals are required in larger quantities. A higher intake of macro minerals like calcium and magnesium is associated with improved heart disease risk factors, particularly high blood pressure. Some of the trace minerals in black sesame seeds — in particular iron, copper, and manganese — are important for regulating your metabolism, cell functioning, and immune system, as well as the circulation of oxygen throughout your body, among other activities. Because more than half of a sesame seed is composed of oil, sesame seeds are also a good source of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

Benefits of Sesame Seeds Black 

Regularly eating black sesame seeds could reduce oxidation in the body, improve blood pressure, and provide antioxidants and other plant chemicals that help fight cancer. All sesame seeds contain antioxidants and healthy plant chemicals, but black sesame seeds appear to be a particularly rich source. Antioxidants are substances that play an important role in preventing or slowing different types of cell damage in your body. Sesame seeds are a good source of bone-forming minerals (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium). One tablespoon of unhulled seeds contains about 88mg of calcium, more than a glass of milk. Plus the high zinc content increases bone mineral density.

Sesame Seeds Black Benefits for Hair and Skin

Black Sesame Seeds aid hair growth due to the high level of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and helps in combating dryness and providing the tresses with moisturization. They prevent split-ends by hydrating the hair and adding shine. The oleic acid in sesame seed offers skin softening as well as cell regenerating benefits. And linoleic acid helps restore the skin barrier and prevents moisture loss from your skin. While the high phytosterols are great for reducing redness and itching and combating weather-damaged skin.

Sesame Seeds Black in Different Languages

Black Sesame seeds are commonly known as 'Kala Til' in Hindi, 'Blāk Nuvvulu' in Telugu, 'blākk Ellu' (Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada), 'Kaale Teel' in Marathi, 'Blēka tala' In Gujarati, and 'Til' in Bengali.

Sesame Seeds Black vs white

White sesame seeds are usually sold with their tan, brownish hulls removed, revealing the off-white embryo within, whereas black sesame often has their hulls still intact. But aside from color, there’s also a subtle difference in taste. Black sesame seeds have a slightly nuttier, more bitter flavor compared to their sweeter white equivalent. When used in large quantities, the richer, more pungent earthiness of black sesame seeds becomes apparent, making a world of difference in desserts.

*A•bani* which means "Of the Farm" in the Garo language and "Earth" in Sanskrit, is aptly named to represent the community that is closest to Nature - our farmers, and also the organic produce that the state of Meghalaya is known for. A few months ago, when the Covid – 19 crisis hit the world, it trickled into our cities, towns, villages, and homes. Everyone has been impacted in one way or another and we continue to see its devastating effects even today. Our governments and non-government organizations, including concerned individuals, have joined hands to fight this global disaster in their individual capacities and to ensure that no one is left behind in the efforts to help those affected. In contribution to the collective efforts, this initiative has been launched to help the farmers’ community of Meghalaya, especially those in interior villages, whose livelihoods depend on the sale of their produces in the markets. With the lockdown on all activities including markets, the farmers face the dangers of going into huge losses and losing their main source of income. This initiative has been designed to ensure that fresh farm produces does not go to waste for lack of markets and that the farmers are not exploited especially during the Covid-19 crisis and to create livelihoods related to the local agro-businesses. This includes non-farming job opportunities such as food processing and packaging, transportation and logistics, media, and marketing. Keeping in mind that Meghalaya has one of the largest numbers of unemployed youth in the country, this initiative strives to transform the community and create a big impact by acknowledging the inter-dependent collective of all members of the community through its various activities.
