There are three varieties of sesame seeds; black, white and red. The black seeds, which I use to press Andreas Black Sesame Oil, yield the highest quality oil, and are also best suited for medicinal purposes. These small seeds are densely packed with nutrients, including protein, lignans, and fiber. Containing high concentrations of vitamin E and multiple forms of B vitamins, including thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid, this sesame seeds have been proven to be beneficial for promoting the overall health and development of several systems in the body. Andreas Sunflower Seed Oil are also an excellent source of amino acids and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as minerals such as calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, and zinc.
