These little bitty seeds are a very good source of the minerals copper and manganese. They are also a good source of magnesium, calcium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and phytosterols. In addition, sesame seeds are a good source of both dietary fiber and monounsaturated fats.

Just a quarter-cup of sesame seeds supplies 74.0% of the daily value for copper, 31.6% of the DV for magnesium, and 35.1% of the DV for calcium.

Cooking with sesame seeds is common in Japanese and Mediterranean cooking. We need to add them to more foods ourselves, don’t ya think?

Throw some in your salad, or on your cooked vegetables, or in your strir-fry.  Good things do come in small packages 😉
