Highly nutritious type of sesame seed. Higher in magnesium and calcium with the hull intact.

Black Tahini is a chocolate grey to black colour with a very similar taste to hulled white tahini. A favourite choice of sesame seed for many.

Black sesame seeds are an excellent source of magnesium and calcium. A 1/4 cup serving provides:
- 126 mg of magnesium, or 32% of the Recommended Daily Value (DV), and
- 351 mg of calcium (35% of the DV).
That is more nutritious than a cup of milk.

Unhulled tahini offers more nutrients than hullled versions. The nutrients of sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverized before consumption, as in tahini - a delicious creamy paste from the traditional slow stonegrinding of sesame seeds.

Sesame seeds are exceptionally rich in iron, magnesium, manganese, copper, and calcium (90 mg per tablespoon of unhulled seeds, 10 mg of hulled), and contain vitamin B1 (thiamine) and vitamin E (tocopherol).

They contain lignans, including unique content of sesamin, which are phytoestrogens with antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Among edible oils from six plants, sesame oil had the highest antioxidant content. Sesame seeds also contain phytosterols associated with reduced levels of blood cholesterol.
