Buy now: Organic black sesame seeds 1.5kg

Open sesame! With these magical words, Ali Baba got access to mountains of treasure. At KoRo, you can get the underrated power seed: our organic black sesame. Buy the spectacular small grains now!

Old but gold

Known as the original sesame type, the little grains have been used for thousands of years. The sesame plant is among the oldest plants in existence. Only the seeds are edible, and we love the plant for them. In contrast to white sesame, the black seeds have a somewhat spiced and stronger taste. We have a few sesame treats in our shop, such as tofu, tahini and  organic black sesame tahini. We also have a few more extravagant types of tahini, such as our tahini with cocoa and tahini with coconut. Try them now!

That special extra in your dishes

You can use the black seeds in countless ways: black sesame is not just beloved in Turkish cuisine, in kebabs, flatbread and pides, but it is also great for homemade cereal bars and biscuits. Sesame is also great to refine desserts such as panna cotta and for topping salads, smoothies and dressings such as hummus. Sushi can also be wonderfully garnished with a few sesame seeds, which give a flavour and visual boost. Buy our organic black sesame now!

Varieties & origins

Sesam_Grading

Black sesame

Hard to find on the market, black sesame is considered the original form of sesame and is mainly harvested in the Himalayas. Stronger in taste than its white counterpart, it contains a lot of nutrients and gives your dishes a beautiful look.

The origin of the sesame is not easy to ascertain, as the oilseed plant has been around and cultivated for more than 2000 years. It is believed that its origin is in Africa or Asia, where most of the sesame production of today comes from, as it thrives best in tropical and subtropical climates. The sesame plant is an annual herb with a height of up to 2 meters. Did you know that sesame seeds are up to 50% oil?

Questions & answers: Organic black sesame seeds 1.5kg
No search results.
With 18g of protein per 100g, black sesame is a great plant-based protein source. With 12 g of fiber per 100 g, it also serves as a super source of fiber and can enrich your diet in many ways. As always, you can find all the nutritional information listed next to the product or in the specification.
Birds like to peck various grains, including sesame. In dog feeding, sesame seeds can also occasionally be on the menu.
The origin of our black sesame is Bolivia. Sesame is originally descended from wild plants of Egypt and South Asia and loves subtropical climate. Mostly the harvest takes place between the end of summer and the beginning of autumn.
Yes! Our organic sesame black is vegan by nature.
Black sesame has a stronger and nuttier taste than the white variety. In addition, black sesame is more nutritious than the more familiar white sesame.
Our sesame is versatile and enriches the diet. It provides vegetable protein and is rich in fiber. If you are crazy about sesame, you should definitely try our organic smoked tofu almond sesame or organic tahini. We also recommend you our all-natural organic seed blend. You can also read exciting information about the wonderful grain in our blog.
The dietary fiber in sesame is mainly contained in the hull, which in turn is difficult to digest. Of course, sesame contains comparatively much of it, because you eat a lot of small grains with hulls. The hulls therefore remain longer in the stomach/intestine and are often excreted undigested.
There are countless sesame recipes: from bread, rolls and bagels to crackers, sushi and energy balls to crispy tofu, salads and sauces. You can get really creative with sesame!
In moderation, the consumption of black sesame should also be safe during pregnancy. To be on the safe side, always talk to your gynecologist if you have any concerns.
We recommend a consumption of 2 teaspoons of black sesame daily. Since black sesame is best absorbed by the body when wet, it is especially recommended to add it to smoothies, in mueslis or in salad dressings.

very good price-performance ratio. I now buy the black sesame only at KoRo.

Black sesame is a very highly respected, nutritious and healthy food in my home country. In my family, this is used in many ways and has become a staple food. I use it as a topping for salads, noodles and stews, bake bread and cookies with it, use it to make fillings for sweet dim sum or cook sesame paste with it, which I eat every other day for breakfast. On other days I make soy milk from the soybeans also from KoRo.
Since I use the black sesame a lot, I often have to buy it from the health food store or the China store. I am glad to have found black sesame in 1.5kg pack at Koro. The price-performance ratio of the package from KoRo is very good and the quality top! I have already made sesame cookies and sesame paste from it. Delicious! A tip: Sesame seeds should always be roasted first either in a pan or in the oven without fat, thereby only the aroma of sesame unfolds. If you don't do that, the sesame tastes rather earthy. So the extra effort is definitely worth it!
This is how I made my sesame paste:
Ingredients: 50g black sesame seeds, toasted without fat,
20g walnuts, roasted without fat,
20g each white glutinous rice and purple glutinous rice,
according to taste sugar e.g. 30g,
500g water
Preparation: put all ingredients in the soy milk machine, select "cereal porridge" program and ready. I imagine Thermomix or similar machines that have the cooking and grinding functions can do this as well.
