I specifically wanted unhulled seeds for sprouting, but couldn't find any (hilariously, "you might also like" is now showing an unhulled raw seed), so I took a chance on these organic seeds sprouting, and they did! I include them in a mix for my very spoiled pet chickens, who think sprouts are the greatest thing ever.
Perfect, I love first and foremost that they are not grown in toxic soil and that the location of their origin is listed unlike other sesame seeds. These are the best quality I have found and blend even better than other seeds into my smoothies (perhaps these seeds are smaller than other sesame seeds). I love the fact that they contain half my daily calcium requirements (being dairy-free is also a plus here). I use them only during the luteal phase (the last two weeks) of my 4 week cycle for hormonal balance. With them in my whey smoothies during the days before my menstrual cycle, my period comes much faster and I immediately feel substantial relief from the PMS-type inflammation I get (cystic breast pain, hot flashes, loss of appetite and nausea, cravings, and indigestion/bloating from eating any carbohydrates or fat at this time).
We sprinkle these on our foods. They have a distinctive taste to them. We have used them on our salad but it can take over your other flavors so use only a small amount first and then add to your liking. The quality is good, packaging is plastic ziptop pouch that a lot of foods come in nowadays.
These are so healthy and taste so good in the black sesame smoothies I make. I also notice the black sesame when taken a while really does help keep greys away and keeps my hair healthy. Also keeps your body healthy!
I use black sesame seeds for a lot of recipes, so it made sense to buy this large package. No complaints here! The quality seems good, and the flavor is nice. The fact that it's organic is also a plus in my book.
I've used Organic Traditions products in the past and love them all. These black sesame seeds are no exception. They are a quality nutritious and healthy product so we use them in our salads all the time. Thanks for carrying such great quality products.
