Sesame Seed Toasted

Adds dimensions of subtle crunch and rich flavor.

Toasted Sesame Seed
(Sesamum indicum)
Sesame Seed Toasted, Whole Seed

With their nutty taste and delicate crunch, toasted sesame seeds are an excellent way to add depth and texture to recipes. They are often used in Asian dishes, which rely on the contrast of texture and taste. When compared to the non-toasted variety, there is a distinct flavor difference. Toasted sesame seeds are far richer, almost smoky. When sourcing our SPICE ISLANDS® sesame seed, we look for seeds that have creamy white color and a mild, nutty flavor.

Fun Fact: “Open sesame”—the famous phrase from the Arabian Nights—reflects the distinguishing feature of the sesame seedpod, which bursts open when it reaches maturity.

Our Toasted Sesame Seed is only sesame seed. SPICE ISLANDS® spices and herbs don’t contain added sugar, fillers or other ingredients so you get the most authentic flavor every time.
