The Botany of Sesame Seeds

Sesame, or Sesamum indicum, is a plant in the Pedaliaceae family. This plant is widely cultivated in regions such as Africa and Asia for its seeds. Whether used raw, toasted, or ground, sesame seeds are very present in European, Asian, and American cuisine.

Sesame Seeds in History

Sesame seeds originated in the East Indies. 3,000 years before Christ, the Chinese used sesame seeds as ink by transforming them into oil and then burning them to produce a black color. Over time, sesame seeds have traveled the world to finally be used in kitchens in the form of oil, pastes, plain or flavored seeds.
