    SESAME SEED HERBAL & OIL DESCRIPTION

    Early records show that for thousands of years Sesame Seeds have been a source of a staple food and oil source in China, Japan, India, and ancient Greece. They used Sesame seed as a overall tonic for everyday health. This seed contains carbohydrates, phosphorus, niacin, protein, calcium, vitamins C, E and A, and unsaturated fatty acids.

    Sesame has one of the highest oil content of any seed, some varietals exceeding 50 percent oil content compared to soybean's 20 percent. Sesame Seed oil is one of the most stable vegetable oils, with a long shelf life, because of the high level of natural antioxidants (sesamin, sesamolin, and sesamol). Oil from the seed is used in cooking, as salad oils, in margarine, and contains about 47 percent oleic and 39 percent linoleic acid. Sesame Seed oil, like sunflower seed oil, is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids. Sesame seed is also rich in protein, at 25 percent by weight. The flour that remains after oil extraction is between 35 to 50 percent protein, has good effective carbohydrates, and contains water-soluble antioxidants (sesaminol glucosides) that provide added shelf-life to many product

    TYPES OF SESAME SEEDS

    Hulled Vs. Unhulled- Sesame seeds can be either hulled or unhulled. Products made from unhulled seeds, such as butter and tahini paste, tend to be darker and more bitter than those made from the kernel alone. The hull has 51 milligrams more calcium than the seed, yet the type of calcium in the hull, oxalate, is not as easily absorbed by the body, according to The World's Healthiest Foods. Unhulled seeds should be preserved in an airtight, cool and dry environment. Hulled seeds tend to turn rancid and should be kept frozen or refrigerated.

    Black Sesame Seeds - Black sesame seeds produce a bold flavor. Black sesame seeds are believed to have medicinal properties and contain high levels of antioxidants. They are used to flavor baked goods and they also produce a powder that is very fragrant and has a bold flavor when the seeds are roasted and ground. The powder is often used on rice dishes, according to food site Tarladalal. The highest-quality oil is made from this type of sesame seed. Black sesame seeds sometimes are used as a substitute for nuts.

    White Sesame Seeds - Toasted sesame seeds are common in sushi rolls. White sesame seeds often are added to buns and breads and other baked goods, adding a crispy texture. In their powdered form, white sesame seeds are used in curry sauces, chutneys and rice, producing a milder flavor than the black variety. Toasted white sesame seeds are commonly added to sushi rolls. They are about 50 percent oil by weight. In China white sesame is called chi mah, and in Japan it is referred to as muki-goma, according to food site Chow.

    SESAME PLANT DESCRIPTION

    Sesame (Sesamum indicum) is a flowering plant in the genus Sesamum. Numerous wild relatives occur in Africa and a smaller number in India. It is widely naturalized in tropical regions around the world and is cultivated for its edible seeds, which grow in pods. Sesame seed is considered to be the oldest oilseed crop known to man, domesticated well over 5000 years ago. Sesame is very drought-tolerant. It has been called a survivor crop, with an ability to grow where most crops fail. Sesame has one of the highest oil content of any seed. With a rich nutty flavor, it is a common ingredient in cuisines across the world. Sesame, like other nuts and foods, triggers allergy reactions in some people. The world harvested about 3.84 million metric tonnes of Sesame seeds in 2010. The largest producer of Sesame seeds in 2010 was Myanmar. The world's largest exporter of sesame seeds was India, while Japan the largest importer.

    The Sesame plant is an annual plant growing to 1.6 to 3.3 feet tall, with opposite leaves 1.6 to 5.5 inches long with an entire margin; they are broad lanceolate, to 2 inches broad, at the base of the plant, narrowing to just 0.4 inch broad on the flowering stem.

    The flowers are yellow, tubular, 1.2 to 2.0 inches long, with a four-lobed mouth. The flowers may vary in color with some being white, blue or purple. Sesame fruit is a capsule, normally pubescent, rectangular in section and typically grooved with a short triangular beak. The length of the fruit capsule varies from 2 to 8 cm, its width varies between 0.5 to 2 cm, and the number of loculi from 4 to 12. The fruit naturally splits opens (dehisces) to release the seeds by splitting along the septa from top to bottom or by means of two apical pores, depending on the varietal cultivar. The degree of dehiscence is of importance in breeding for mechanized harvesting as is the insertion height of the first capsule.

    Sesame seeds are small. The size, form and colors vary with the thousands of varieties now known. Typically, the sesame seeds are about 3 to 4 millimeters long by 2 millimeters wide and 1 millimeter thick. The seeds are ovate, slightly flattened and somewhat thinner at the eye of the seed (hilum) than at the opposite end. The weight of the seed is between 20 and 40 milligrams. The seed coat (testa) may be smooth or ribbed. Sesame seeds come in many colors depending on the cultivar harvested. The most traded variety of Sesame is off white colored. Other common colors are buff, tan, gold, brown, reddish, gray and black. Sesame seed is sometimes sold with its seed coat removed (decorticated). This is the variety often present on top of buns in developed economies.

    THE ORIGIN OF SESAME SEED PLANTS

    Sesame seed is considered to be the oldest oilseed crop known to humanity. Sesame has many species, and most are wild. Most wild species of the genus Sesamum are native to sub-saharan Africa. Sesame Indicum the cultivated type, originated in India. Charred remains of sesame recovered from archeological excavations have been dated to 3500-3050 BCE. Fuller claims trading of Sesame between Mesopotamia and regions that are now Pakistan and India occurred by 2000 BCE. Some reports claim Sesame was cultivated in Egypt during the Ptolemiac period. Records from Babylon and Assyria, dating about 4000 years ago mention Sesame. Egyptians called it sesemt, and it is included in the list of medicinal drugs in the scrolls of the Ebers Papyrus dated to be over 3600 years old. Archeological reports from Turkey indicate that Sesame was grown and pressed to extract oil at least 2750 years ago in the empire of Urartu.

    The historic origins of Sesame was favored by its ability to grow in areas that will not support the growth of other crops; it is also a robust crop that needs little farmer support as it grows in drought conditions, in high heat, with residual moisture in soil after monsoons are gone or even when rains fail or when rains are excessive. It was a crop that could be grown by subsistence farmers at the edge of deserts, where no crops grow. Sesame has been called a survivor crop.

    CULTIVATION & HARVESTING OF SESAME

    Sesame is very drought-tolerant, in part due to its extensive root system. However, it requires adequate moisture for germination and early growth. While the crop survives drought as well as presence of excess water, the yields are significantly lower in either conditions. Moisture levels before planting and flowering impact yield most. Most commercial cultivars of Sesame are intolerant of water-logging. Rainfall late in the season prolongs growth and increases high harvest-shattering losses. Wind can also cause shattering at harvest. Initiation of flowering is sensitive to photoperiod and to Sesame variety. The photoperiod also impacts the oil content in sesame seed; increased photoperiod increases oil content. The oil content of the seed is inversely proportional to its protein content. Sesame varieties have adapted to many soil types. The high yielding crops thrive best on well-drained, fertile soils of medium texture and neutral pH. However these have low tolerance for soils with high salt and water-logged conditions. Commercial sesame crops require 90 to 120 frost free days. Warm conditions above 23°C favor growth and yields. While sesame crops can grow in poor soils, the best yields come from properly fertilized farms.

    Since sesame is a small flat seed, it is difficult to dry it after harvest because the small seed makes movement of air around the seed difficult. Therefore, the seeds need to be harvested as dry as possible and stored at 6 percent moisture or less. If the seed is too moist, it can quickly heat up and become rancid. The white and other lighter colored sesame seeds are common in Europe, the Americas, West Asia, and Indian subcontinent. The black and darker colored sesame seeds are mostly produced in China and southeast Asia. Africa produces a variety of sesame seeds. Beginning in the 1950s, U.S. production of the crop has been largely centered in Texas, with acreage fluctuating between 10,000 to 20,000 acres in recent years. The country's crop does not make up a significant global source; indeed imports have now outstripped domestic production. Japan is the world's largest sesame importer. Sesame oil, particularly from roasted seed, is an important component of Japanese cooking and traditionally this is the principal use of the seed. China is the second largest importer of sesame, mostly oil-grade sesame. China exports lower priced food grade sesame seeds, particularly to southeast Asia. Other major importers are the United States, Canada, Netherlands, Turkey and France.

    PROCESSING SESAME SEEDS

    After harvesting, the seeds are usually cleaned and hulled. In some countries, once the seeds have been hulled, they are passed through an electronic color-sorting machine that rejects any discolored seeds to ensure perfectly colored sesame seeds. This is done because sesame seeds with consistent appearance is perceived to be of better quality by consumers and sells for higher price. Immature or off-sized seed is removed but saved for oil production.

    SESAME PESTS

    Sesame is used as a food plant by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species, including the Turnip Moth.




    SESAME SEED USES, HEALTH BENEFITS, & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    For thousands of years, sesame seeds have been a source of food and oil. Sesame has one of the highest oil content of any seed, some varietals exceeding 50 percent oil content compared to soybean's 20 percent. Sesame oil is one of the most stable vegetable oils, with long shelf life, because of the high level of natural antioxidants (sesamin, sesamolin, and sesamol). Oil from the seed is used in cooking, as salad oils and margarine, and contains about 47 percent oleic and 39 percent linoleic acid. Sesame Seed Oil, like sunflower seed oil, is rich in Omega 6 fatty acids, but lacks Omega 3 fatty acids. Sesame seed is also rich in protein, at 25 percent by weight. The flour that remains after oil extraction is between 35 to 50 percent protein, has good effective carbohydrates, and contains water-soluble antioxidants (sesaminol glucosides) that provide added shelf-life to many products. This flour, also called sesame meal, is an excellent high-protein feed for poultry and livestock. The addition of sesame to high lysine meal of soybean produces a well balanced animal feed. The relative ratio of protein and oil, as well as essential amino acids and essential fatty acids varies with sesame cultivar as well as growing conditions.

    Sesame seed nourishes the kidney and liver, and helps relax the bowel. It is a good remedy for treating constipation due to hard stools, constipation, dysentery, and hemorrhoids. Sesame seed is said to darken prematurely graying hair. It is also used to treat backache, blurry vision, tinnitus, anemia, amenorrhea, dysmenorrhea, receding gums, tooth decay, hair loss, weak bones, osteoporosis, emaciation, dry cough, blood in the urine, weak knees, and stiff joints. Due to its calcium content, Sesame nourishes the blood, calms nervous spasms and alleviates headaches, migraines, vertigo or dizziness caused by deficient blood. The oil of sesame can be used to help treat burns, boils, ulcers, sunburn, remove freckles, and age spots.

    Sesame seeds contain the lignans pinoresinol and lariciresinol. Kamal-Eldin et al. have reviewed patent literature claiming beneficial effects of sesame seed. They note that these health claims are based on the very high levels (up to 2.5%) of furofuran lignans with beneficial physiological activities, mainly sesamin, sesamolin, and sesaminol glucosides. Among edible oils from six plants, sesame oil had the highest Ferric Reducing / Antioxidant Power (FRAP) value, which means the herbs and additives are better preserved in sesame oil. To the extent these herbs have health benefits, the study proposes that it may be possible that ingestion of these herbs preserved in sesame oil could increase resistance of polyunsaturated fatty acids of cell membranes and lipoproteins to oxidation within the body. Sesame seeds contain phytosterols associated with reduced levels of blood cholesterol. Sesame seeds are a good source of calcium and are therefore suitable for sufferers of osteoporosis. Sesame seeds contain a high amount of the antioxidant phytic acid. The nutrients of sesame seeds are better absorbed if they are ground or pulverized before consumption, as in tahini.

    Women of ancient Babylon would eat halva, a mixture of honey and sesame seeds to prolong youth and beauty, while Roman soldiers ate the mixture for strength and energy. There have been erroneous claims that sesame seeds also contain THC which may be detectable on random screening. This error stems from a misunderstanding of the commercial drug Dronabinol, a synthetic form of THC. The normal delivery mechanism for synthetic dronabinol is via infusion into sesame oil and encapsulation into soft gelatin capsules. As a result some people are under the mistaken assumption that sesame oil naturally contains THC. In fact, THC, CBD, CBN and the other cannabinoids are unique to the Cannabis genus.

    SESAME SEED OIL

    Sesame Seed Oil is also known as gingili oil or till oil, which is an edible vegetable oil with yellow color derived from sesame seeds. It is used in salad oils, as margarine, shortenings and a wide range of other food products. Besides, it is used as cooking oil in South India, a flavor enhancer in Chinese, Korean. Sesame seed oil is also popular as carrier oil found in aromatherapy, skin care and massage oils. You can even find sesame seed oils in cosmetics, soaps, shampoos, lotions and also suntan lotions. Referred to as benne in China, it is one of the most wide used oils available for cooking. Used for over 5000 years, the Chinese would utilize the oil in cooking only by dripping or sprinkling a little bit on soups or dishes which would release a beautiful fragrance and flavor to even the most dullest dishes. China was not the only famous culture that utilized Sesame Seed oil. It has been used extensively in India as healing oil. Sesame oil is used for massage and health treatments of the body (abhyanga and shirodhara) and teeth (oil pulling) in the ancient Indian ayurvedic system. Ayurveda views sesame oil as the most viscous of the plant oils and believes it may pacify the health problems associated with Vata aggravation. Sesame oil is said to be good for controlling high blood pressure, gastric, cholesterol and other health-related problems.

    This oil is sometimes found to be strong smelling by some, yet is a good source of vitamins E and B complex and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Sesame oil further contains protein as well as lecithin. Although it is a thick oil, it is used for eczema, psoriasis as well as older and mature skin and it contains excellent moisturizing properties. In folk medicine it has also been used to help fade blemishes. It is best mixed with another carrier oil, such as Almond or Grapeseed oils to make it a bit lighter. Sesame massage oil has great moisturizing, soothing and emollient qualities which makes it a good choice to include when mixing a massage oil or preparing a carrier oil blend. Sesame oil has some sun screening properties but should not be used as a sun screen preparation, unless in an emergency. Since it is a good source of vitamins and minerals we find it to be a good oil to use in a blend when preparing a massage base oil.

Sesame oil is a very popular ingredient, especially in Chinese and Indian cuisine. It is one of the most distinctive, fragrant and flavorful oils you will find, with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor that is enhanced by toasting the seeds. Sprinkle it sparingly over the food just before serving. Sesame oil is a huge storehouse of vital nutrients like vitamin E and vitamin B. Also, it is loaded with polyunsaturated fats, protein and essential fatty acids like omega-3 fatty acid and omega-6 fatty acids, that are very essential for a healthy body. Not only for culinary, there are numerous other benefits of sesame oil that just cannot be overlooked. Sesame oil is a great emollient and nutritious bliss for skin care and healthy body too. A quality massage performed using sesame oil can be great in curing arthritis and several other health related issues. There are a lot of medicinal uses of the dark sesame oil as well as the light sesame oil.
    • Cooking: Sesame Seed Oil has a high smoke point and is suitable for deep-frying, while heavy (dark) sesame oil (from roasted sesame seeds) has a slightly lower smoke point and is unsuitable for deep-frying. Instead it can be used for the stir-frying of meat or vegetables. Most in Asia use roasted sesame oil for seasoning, particularly in East Asian cuisine. It is used in preparation of various food recipes as well as to add flavors into different dishes, as a final act of garnishing or serving the dish. Only a few drops of sesame oil are enough to change and enhance a simple dish completely. Not only the taste, but sesame oil is loaded with many nutritious qualities.

    • Massage: Sesame Seed Oil is reputed to penetrate the skin easily, and is used in India for oil massage. In Maharashtra, Sesame oil is specially used for massaging the foot.

    • Food Manufacture: Sesame Seed Oil is used in the manufacture of pickles. Refined sesame oil is used to make margarine in Western countries.

Using a little bit of Sesame Seed Oil can also help you combat hypertension, thus eliminating the need for high quantities of synthetic medicines.

    TYPES OF SESAME OIL & SUGGESTED SESAME SEED & OIL CULINARY USES

    Sesame seed is a common ingredient in various cuisines. It is used whole in cooking for its rich nutty flavor. Sesame seeds are sometimes added to breads, including bagels and the tops of hamburger buns. Sesame seeds may be baked into crackers, often in the form of sticks. In Sicily and France, the seeds are eaten on bread (called "ficelle sesame", sesame thread). Fast food restaurants use buns with tops sprinkled with sesame seeds. About one-third of Mexico's sesame crop is exported to the United States and purchased by McDonald's for their sesame seed buns. Sesame seeds are sprinkled onto some sushi style foods but this practice is more popular in Asia. Whole seeds are found in many salads and baked snacks as well in Japan. East Asian cuisines, like Chinese cuisine use sesame seeds and oil in some dishes, such as dim sum, sesame seed balls ; and the Vietnamese banh ran. Sesame flavor (through oil and roasted or raw seeds) is also very popular in Korean cuisine, used to marinate meat and vegetables. Chefs in tempura restaurants blend sesame and cottonseed oil for deep-frying. Tan and black sesame seed varieties are roasted and used for making the flavoring gomashio. In Greece the seeds are used in cakes, and in Togo they are a main soup ingredient.
    • Light Sesame Oil: Sesame oil is a healthy choice for salad dressings. Light sesame oil is made from raw sesame seeds. This oil is produced by applying pressure to the seeds until they emit oil. Light sesame oil has a high smoke point and is good for stir-frying, sauteing and deep-frying. It is pale yellow in color, and is frequently used in Asian dishes. It is also a healthy alternative to cooking oils which contain saturated fat.

    • Dark Sesame Oil: Sesame oil is often used in Asian cuisine. Dark sesame oil is extracted from toasted, rather than raw, sesame seeds. Toasting the seeds produces an oil with a richer, nuttier taste. Dark sesame oil will smoke at lower temperatures than light sesame oil; it is better used for flavoring than for cooking or frying. Dark sesame oil is also appropriate for use in marinades, salad dressings and as a sauce ingredient.

    • Chili Sesame Oil: Infusing sesame oil with chilis adds a kick. This tangy variety of sesame oil is flavored with natural chili seasoning. Chili sesame oil is good for adding a bit of heat to soups, salads, eggs, sauces, meats and vegetables.

    • Cold-Pressed & Organic Sesame Oils: The raw, untoasted seeds for cold-pressed sesame oil are pressed at a low temperature. This process produces a purer form of sesame oil and preserves a greater amount of sesamol (an antioxidant compound) in the oil. Organic Sesame Seed is made with seeds from plants which were not treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

    In DR Congo and North of Angola, ground sesame or wangila is a delicious dish, especially when cooked with smoked fish or lobsters. In Manipur (India) black sesame is used in the preparation of Thoiding and in Singju (a kind of salad). Thoiding is prepared with ginger and chili and vegetables are used in the spicy Singu dish. In Assam, black sesame seeds are used to make Til Pitha and Tilor laru (sesame seed balls) during bihu. In Punjab and Tamil Nadu (both in India), a sweet ball called "Pinni" in Urdu and "Ell urundai" in Tamil, "Ellunda" in Malayalam, "Yellunde" (sesame ball, usually in jaggery) in Kannada and tilgul in Marathi is made of its seeds mixed with sugar. Also in Tamil Nadu, sesame oil used extensively in their cuisine, Milagai Podi, a ground powder made of sesame and dry chili is used to enhance flavor and consumed along with other traditional foods such as idli.

    Sesame seed cookies and wafers, both sweet and savory, are popular in places like Charleston, South Carolina. Sesame seeds, also called benne, are believed to have been brought into 17th century colonial America by West African slaves. Since then, they have become part of various American cuisines.

    In Caribbean cuisine, sugar and white sesame seeds are combined into a bar resembling peanut brittle and sold in stores and street corners. Sesame is a popular and essential ingredient in many Middle Eastern cuisines. Sesame seeds is made into a paste called tahini (used in various ways, including hummus bi tahini) and the Middle Eastern confection halvah. Ground and processed, the seeds is also used in sweet confections. In South Asia, Middle East, East Asian cuisines, popular confectionery are made from sesame mixed with honey or syrup and roasted into a sesame candy. In Japanese cuisine goma-dofu is made from sesame paste and starch. Mexican cuisine refers to sesame seeds as Ajonjolí. It is mainly used as a sauce additive, such as mole or adobo. It is often also used to sprinkle over artisan breads and baked in traditional form to coat the smooth dough, especially on whole wheat flat breads or artisan nutrition bars, such as alegrías.

    Sesame oil is sometimes used as a cooking oil in different parts of the world. Although sesame leaves are edible as a potherb, recipes for Korean cuisine calling for "sesame leaves" are often a mistranslation, and really mean perilla.

      1/4 teaspoon All Purpose Soy Sauce
    Dressing Ingredients
      1/2 cup White Sesame Seeds (Warmed & ground into a paste)
      3 tablespoons Sake
      2 teaspoons Sugar
      2 tablespoons All Purpose Soy Sauce

    Instructions: Snip off and discard the ends of the green beans. Cut them into 1/2-inch lengths. Drop the beans into 2 cups of lightly salted boiling water, reduce the heat to moderate and cook briskly, uncovered, for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the beans are tender but still slightly resistant to the bite. Drain and run them under cold water.

    In the same pan, combine the dashi, sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, a sprinkle of soy sauce, sake. Bring to a boil over moderate heat, add the string beans and return to the boil. Remove the pan from the heat and cool to room temperature.

    To make the dressing, over high heat, heat 3 tablespoons sake to lukewarm. Remove pan from heat and ignite the sake with a kitchen match, shaking the pan gently until the flame dies out. Pour the sake into a small bowl and cool to room temperature. Add the sake, 2 teaspoons sugar and 2 tablespoons soy sauce to the previously prepared sesame paste and mix together thoroughly. Pour the sesame dressing into a large bowl, add the drained string beans and toss together until the vegetables are thoroughly coated. Taste for seasoning adding more salt if necessary. Serve at room temperature in small bowls, as a first course, salad or part of a Japanese meal. Makes six servings.

    SESAME OIL SUBSTITUTIONS IN THE KITCHEN

    Sesame Seed Oil is available in both light and dark forms. The light form is actually sesame oil that is incurred through raw sesame seeds and it has quite a nutty flavor. Light sesame oil is very popular in Indian cooking. The dark sesame oil is made from toasted sesame oil and it is very aromatic with stronger texture. To be frank, dark sesame oil is not a great cooking oil, for it gets burned quite quickly and easily too. Also, the flavor of dark sesame oil can be a bit too much, at times. Hence, here comes the need of finding dark sesame oil substitute for a better cooking.
    • Nut Oils: Although nut oils do not provide an identical flavor, you can substitute them for toasted sesame oil in recipes. Peanut oil is among the most common nut oils. You can find it in most grocery stores. You may have to search for it in specialty stores, but almond oil is another acceptable substitute. To better achieve the flavor of toasted sesame oil, look for nut oils made from toasted or roasted nuts rather than oil extracted from raw nuts. You can also try toasting some raw nuts and blending them with a light oil , such as canola oil, for instance.

    • Light Sesame Oil: The flavor and texture of toasted sesame oil may be too intense for your palate. Processors make dark sesame oil, a regular ingredient in Indian cooking, by extracting oil from toasted sesame seeds. For a milder flavor, try substituting with light sesame oil extracted from raw sesame seeds. Light sesame oil has a nutty flavor not as bold as the darker, toasted sesame oil. Using light sesame oil will give you satisfactory cooking results without sacrificing the health benefits some associate with consuming sesame oil.

    • Sesame Seeds: You may need to substitute toasted sesame oil simply because a recipe calls for it and you do not have any in stock. If you have sesame seeds in your pantry, you can easily make your own version of toasted sesame oil at home. Toast the raw seeds over medium heat in a skillet, turning frequently, until a rich, brown color emerges. Use a mortar and pestle or food processor to grind the seeds. You can toss the toasted seeds in a vegetable, canola or other cooking oil to achieve an acceptable substitute.

    If you must find a substitute, make sure you substitute it with an equally healthy option. A healthy substitute can be peanut oil. But then, chances are there that you will miss the point entirely. Sesame oil is very essential in many complex Asian recipes. Although it has got a high smoke point, it is supposedly a great oil for sautéing and frying different recipes. So, only if you must substitute sesame oil, then it will be worth a try to use light sesame oil as dark sesame oil substitute. If the sesame oil is unavailable, in your locality (which is impossible, you can easily find sesame oil in the ethnic food section of the stores) then use peanut oil as a substitute, but it will be hard on the taste of the recipes in which you are replacing its natural taste maker.

    SESAME SEEDS & RELIGION

    According to Assyrian legend, when the gods met to create the world, they drank wine made from sesame seeds.

    In Hindu legends and beliefs, tales are told in which sesame seeds represent a symbol of immortality and the God Maha Vishnu's consort Maha Sri Devi herself representing the properties of the sesame seed, as such it is considered as the most auspicious oil next to ghee used in Hindu rituals and prayers.

    In recent times, sesame seeds have become an ingredient in wiccan practices. Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Wicca in the Kitchen suggests their use to aid conception, to draw money, or for protection.

    SESAME SEEDS & LITERATURE

    in the Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves story, the phrase "Open Sesame" magically unseals a cave of stolen booty stashed by the thieves. The origin of the phrase is unclear. Upon ripening, sesame fruit capsules split, releasing the seeds with a pop. It has been suggested that this is root of the phrase "Open Sesame" in the historic fable of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves in One Thousand and One Nights. The opening of the capsule releases the treasure of Sesame seeds.

    Sesame seeds are used conceptionally in Urdu literature. The proverb "til dharnay ki jagan na hona" means a place so crowded that there is no room for a single seed of sesame. The proverb "in tilon mein feil nahee" refers to a person who appears to be useful but is not much use when the time comes (selfish) - literally meaning there is no oil (left) in this sesame.

    SESAME SEED DOSAGE INFORMATION

    In the Middle East the seeds are ground thoroughly into powder and mixed into a paste with honey. They eat 2 teaspoons of this mixture daily for overall health.

    To treat a dry cough, asthma, and lung conditions, combine the powdered seeds with a pinch of Black Pepper, Ginger juice, and Honey. Take 1 tablespoons 3 times a day.

    For taking other formulations, read and follow products label directions.




    SESAME SEED SAFETY & INTERACTION INFORMATION

    Sesame Seed is generally regarded as safe when taken in the recommended doses; however, if you are obese, consult your health care practitioner before taking Sesame seeds. Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known. Avoid if you have allergies to Sesame Seeds.

    SESAME SEED ALLERGY

    Sesame seeds and sesame oil are a serious allergen to some people. Even some infants have been found to exhibit allergies to sesame. In Australia the occurrence of allergy to sesame seed was estimated to be 0.42 percent among all children, while in the United Kingdom the allergic reaction was found to affect 0.04 percent of adults. The occurrence of allergy to sesame in patients with some form of food allergy was found to be much higher than in the general population, ranging from 0.5 percent in Switzerland to 8.5 percent in Australia. In other words, allergy to sesame affects a small percentage of overall human population; but, sesame allergy is high in people who already show symptoms of allergy to other foods.

    The symptoms of Sesame seed allergy can be classified into:
    • Systemic Reactions: Primarily presenting anaphylaxis characterized by symptoms including hives (urticaria), lip and eyelid swelling (angioedema ) sneezing, nasal itching, congestion, rhinorrhea, wheezing, cough, tightness of throat, hoarse voice, difficulty in breathing, abdominal pain, unconsciousness, shock with drop of blood pressure. In the systemic reactions can also be included severe reactions like dizziness, drowsiness, chills and collapse as has been reported in patients after ingestion of falafel burger.

    • Other Symptoms: Facial or generalized redness (“flushing”), hives (urticaria) on smaller or larger parts of the body, swelling of the eyelids, lips or other parts of the face, itching of the eyes or of the skin in general, hay fever symptoms in the eyes and eczema.

    • Respiratory Symptoms: Respiratory symptoms observed include hay fever, asthma, cough, wheeze, or difficulty in breathing.

    • Gastrointestinal Symptoms: Itching in the mouth and/or tongue soon after chewing and ingesting (Oral allergy syndrome) and abdominal pain.

    Amounts as low as 100 mg of sesame seeds or sesame flour and 3 ml of sesame oil can trigger allergic reactions in severe cases of sesame allergic individuals. Most patients, however, show allergic reactions after consuming 2 to 10 grams of sesame seeds or sesame seed flour. The onset of the symptoms may occur within a few minutes up to 90 minutes after ingestion of sesame seed product. It was a common finding that most patients had other allergic diseases such as asthma, hay fever, and eczema, and most patients also had a relative with an allergic disease. More than two thirds of the patients with Sesame allergy also had food allergic reactions to other foods.

    Prevalence of sesame allergy varies per country. While it is one of the three most common allergens in Israel, sesame allergy prevalence is considered small relative to other allergens in the United States. Some experts consider sesame allergies to have "increased more than any other type of food allergy over the past 10 to 20 years" in the United States. Such increasing prevalence led Canada to issue regulations that require food labels to note the presence of sesame.

    In addition to products derived from sesame such as tahini and sesame oil, persons with sesame allergies are warned to stay away from a broad assortment of processed foods including baked goods, tempeh, and generic "vegetable oil." In addition to possible food sources, individuals allergic to sesame have been warned that a variety of non-food sources may also trigger a reaction to sesame, including adhesive bandages, cosmetics, hair care products, perfumes, soaps and sunscreens, drugs, some fungicides and insecticides, lubricants, ointments and topical oils, and pet food.

    At least one study found that "standard skin and blood testing for food allergies does not predict whether a child has true sesame allergy." In which case, a food challenge under direction of a allergist may be required to properly diagnose a sesame allergy.

    There appears to be cross-reactivity between sesame allergens and peanut, rye, kiwifruit, poppy seed, and various tree nuts (such as hazelnut, black walnut, cashew, macadamia and pistachio).
