Sesame is a highly concentrated oil bearing seed. Its rich flavour makes it a common ingredient in global cuisines.
White or lighter coloured sesame seeds are commonly used in Europe, America, West Asia, and the Indian subcontinent. Black or darker coloured sesame seeds are mostly produced and used in China and Southeast Asia.
African sesame seed production presently contributes over 70% of the global traded volume, originating predominantly from, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Tanzania.
