Sesamum indicum is a plant that has been cultivated for thousands of years. It has fruit pods that contain oily, small and flat seeds called Black Sesame Seeds. There are a lot of colour varieties of sesame seeds such as brown, white, black, gold, grey, and tan.
When the husk of the black sesame seed is removed, it turns into white sesame seed because after removing the hull of the grain, its white inner parts are revealed. By removing the hull, the seed will also have different nutrients and flavours.
