Dear Friends, When it comes to grains, beans and seeds, we think nature got it right. We honor this innate perfection by keeping our foods simple, and our white sesame seeds are an excellent example of that practice. They are simply seeds from sesame plant that have had their outer coating removed to reveal the wondrous nutritional bounties stored within. It doesn't get much simpler than that. And we think that's just how it should be. To your good health, Bob Moore.
