Natural sesame seeds are unshelled, sesame seeds usually come from India, they are raw and organic. We soak them for 12 hours to activate the enzymes and make them more digestible. These are digestive enzymes. Then after having rinsed them well, we put them in the dehydrator at very low temperature for 24 hours. The low temperature does not kill enzymes and allows the product to keep for years without using a preservative.
On the third day they are ground on grindstones, so there is no excessive speed that could heat the oil in the nuts, and no metal blade from the robot that promotes oxidation.
Whole sesame seeds (not shelled) are also very rich in minerals.
Antioxidants. Antioxidants are compounds that protect the cells of the body from damage caused by free radicals. These are very reactive molecules which are said to be involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases, certain cancers and other diseases linked to aging.
Vitamin E. Sesame contains tocopherols, antioxidant compounds that can form vitamin E.
Lignans. Sesame seed is one of the foods that contains the most lignans, plant compounds playing a role similar to that of estrogen; that’s why they’re also called phytoestrogens. Sesame lignans, even when the sesame is not ground, are absorbed and converted in the human body as effectively as lignans from flax seeds.
Natural sesame seeds contain 4 x more calcium than shelled sesame seeds.
