Organic Black Sesame Seeds are raw, rich in nutrition, and flavourful. Sesame seeds are believed to be one of the worlds' first spices. The earliest recorded use of sesame seeds as a spice can be traced to an Assyrian legend, which claimed that the gods drank sesame-based wine before creating the earth.

Sesame seeds are still a main spice and food source throughout Asia and parts of Europe and Africa. Although they are considered a culinary treat in many places, sesame seeds also have various medicinal uses. The seeds are usually harvested in early autumn, shortly after turning ripe, and allowed to dry in the sun before being prepared for herbal remedies. In traditional Chinese medicine, black sesame seeds have sweet and neutral properties, and are associated with the Kidney and Liver meridians. They function to tonify yin jing and blood, moisten the intestines, and help build the spirit, or shen.

Black sesame seeds are an extremely good source of calcium; studies have shown that one gram of seeds contains approximately 85 milligrams of calcium. Black sesame seeds also have high amounts of protein, phosphorous, iron and magnesium. In some patients, black sesame seeds are used to help patients recover from serious illnesses and fevers, treat constipation and promote regular bowel movements.
