Black sesame seeds – a source of proteins
Black sesame is the way “mother” of the different types of existing sesame. The sesame plant can – depending on the type – create white seeds, light brown or black seeds. Chinese medicine has known the healing power of black sesame for the longest of times. It has a slightly nutty flavor and is very decorative on the plate.
Black sesame is an excellent source of proteins. It is especially recommended for athletes, pregnant women, mothers who breastfeed, vegans and people who cannot tolerate or don’t want to eat dairy products. As black sesame has all the essential amino acids (essential for life) which our body uses to build cells, it is an ingredient that strengthens all tissues, including bones, teeth, nails, hair and skin. Both concentration capacity and vitality increase with its consumption.
The black sesame should be ground and sprinkled over muesli in the morning, over dessert, soup or vegetables. To maintain its valuable nutrients intact it should never be cooked or brought to a boil. You need a special mill to grind it, a ceramic mill, so that the seeds do not clog it up. A pepper mill will not do in this case.
A teaspoon of black sesame per person is the recommended dosage.
Just put it on the table like you would with a pepper mill!
