Sesame seeds are incredibly resilient and able to grow in places where many other crops cannot. It is a common ingredient in dishes across the globe such as bread meals, soups, crackers, and meat cuisines. Sesame seeds are packed with dietary fiber, protein, vitamin B, copper, manganese, calcium, and magnesium.
