These seeds are incredibly rich sources of many essential minerals. Calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, magnesium, selenium, and copper are especially concentrated in sesame seeds. Many of these minerals have a vital role in bone mineralization, red blood cell production, enzyme synthesis, hormone production, as well as regulation of cardiac and skeletal muscle activities.
As a condiment, you can sprinkle toasted sesame seeds on top of stir-fries, salads, and soups. It can also be added to bakery goods. The nutty flavour and crunch go well with many kinds of baked goods, both sweet and savory.
