  • About

    Black Sesame seeds are cultivated throughout China, used extensively for food, oil and medicine.

    Traditionally, they are used for medicine, though in practice, the black seeds are rarely used in Chinese herb decoctions and are more commonly recommended as a food herb.

    The plant is not known in a truly wild situation, but it is said to have been cultivated as early as 3,000 B.C. It is not clear where the seed originated, but it is speculated that it was native to tropical Africa.

    It has since travelled all over the world and is now extensively grown in many tropical and warm temperate regions, China being the largest producer of the crop.


    Black Sesame seeds are herbs which targets anti-aging, fibre and cell reinforcements and balancing blood pressure.

    These are naturally high in protein, contain antioxidants, as well as being naturally high in calcium, magnesium, copper and iron. 

    They can be used in a number of culinary dishes (see How to Use dropdown menu).
