Toasted white sesame seeds have had their thin black hulls removed, giving them a light colour and a delicate, nutty flavour. They come from the pods of sesame plants – the phrase “Open Sesame” referring to the moment that they burst open releasing the and release their seeds.

The sesame seeds have been pre-toasted to enhance the flavours, meaning they can be used straight from the packet without having to dry-roast them first.

Toasted white sesame seeds are used widely in Japanese cooking to texture and flavour to dishes. Try sprinkling them on rice, as well as using them for onigiri and ohitashi spinach. Also stud white sesame seeds in bread rolls, as well as scattering them over noodles and salads.

Ingredients: White sesame seed (100%). Contains sesame.
