Sesame is considered the oldest oilseed known to humanity. It’s known for its diverse range of uses and health benefits, and is used in recipes all over the world. With a high percentage of copper and manganese, sesame supports anti-inflammatory systems and respiratory health.
Fun fact: Sesame is a powerfully resilient crop, making it a farmer’s favorite. It needs little farming support and can grow in all kinds of conditions from droughts, high heat, to excessive rain – even monsoons! It can be grown at the edge of deserts, granting it the nickname “Survivor crop.” Go, sesame, go.
