Sesame Seeds Black add a nutty flavor to Asian and Middle Eastern dishes. Lightly toasting them before use enhances their flavor.
Black sesame seeds are unhulled, while white sesame seeds have had their hulls removed to reveal the white inner parts of the seeds. Removing the hull results in a few differences that range from flavor to nutritional content. Black sesame seeds are richer in calcium than their white counterparts. They are also slightly bitter as a result of the hulls being present, whereas white sesame seeds have a sweeter and nuttier flavor. Black sesame seeds are also the crisper of the two sesame seed types.
