God spice, this modest name gave the Babylonians that seed, which you find in the form of sesame paste in our hummus. Sesame is originally from Africa. From there he came to Asia and then to the rest of the world. The sesame plant thrives only in tropical climates. Not only is sesame found in our hummus, it is also a staple of our tahina.
Sesame paste refines our hummus and gives it a pleasantly nutty note, while offering a variety of vital substances that are good for your health.
So why should you eat sesame?
Sesame seeds are rich in unsaturated fatty acids, fiber, vitamins and minerals. It also contains vitamins A, niacin, vitamin B 1, vitamin B 2, vitamin B6 and folic acid.
Vitamin E and phytochemicals such as sesamin and sesamolin give sesame antioxidant power. This has a positive effect on your vascular system and, consumed regularly, can help lower blood pressure.
But that’s not all, the high fiber and its high binding capacity help purify your stomach and eliminate undigested food.
In addition, sesame can also be called, literally, calcium source. With 780mg calcium / 100g, the calcium content is 6.5 times higher than that of dairy products.
One hundred grams of sesame seeds contain 340 mg of magnesium, 10 mg of iron, 8 mg of zinc, 458 mg of potassium, 740 mg of calcium, 45 mg of sodium, 607 mg of phosphorus and 2.5 to 3 mg of vitamin E. With 58 grams of fat, they also offer just under 600 calories at.
