What is Sesame?
One of mankind’s oldest used oilseed crops, sesame (Sesamum indicum) has been domesticated for over 3,000 years, and has been around for nearly 6,000 years! This upright herb can reach a height of 5 feet and grows in tropical and subtropical climates. It has tubular flowers that can be white, yellow, blue, or purple and long-treasured fruits that are pods which contain the precious oilseeds.
Sesame seed oil has earned the title the “Queen of Oils,” and it’s no wonder why! The versatile vegetable oil pressed from the seeds has been historically used for a variety of applications. The ancient Egyptians used the oil in the preparation of mummies, while Ayurvedic practices use it as a massage oil. Sesame seeds are also one of the 2 primary dietary sources of lignans, the other source being flaxseed. The main lignan sourced from sesame seeds is called Sesamin.

In addition to lignans, sesame seed oil delivers other beneficial nutrients such as omega-6 and 9 essential fatty acids, vitamin B6, and magnesium. This oil is perfect for high-heat cooking, such as stir-frying and sautéing, and is a staple in Asian and Middle Eastern dishes. It can also be used topically as a luxurious skin and hair moisturizer, and is also suitable for oil-pulling.
