Black Sesame Seeds - Highly nutritious type of sesame seed. Higher in magnesium and calcium. 

A 1/4 cup serving of Black Sesame Seeds 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.

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.
