Sesame seeds are high in copper, manganese, calcium, iron, B1 and magnesium. A quarter cup of sesame seeds contains 2.5g of saturated fat and no cholesterol. The powder is made by roasting the sesame seeds which brings out the seeds’ full, nutty flavor then grinding the seeds into a fine powder.
Toasting or roasting sesame seeds alters nutritional values. Studies show that the calcium levels are slightly higher when the seeds are toasted. The lignans in sesame seeds have been shown to lower cholesterol, prevent high blood pressure and protect the liver. Sesame seeds are also said to boost the immune system and decrease the risk of some types of cancer.
Sesame seed powder allows you to mix them into other dishes without getting the texture, but still getting the flavor and nutritional value.
