(Sesamum indicum L.) Sesame, is widely cultivated in the Middle East and India, where it originated. Currently, its cultivation has spread to other tropical and subtropical America, Africa and Mediterranean countries. The parts that are used in this plant are the seeds. These sesame seeds contain a wide variety of plant nutrients of high biological value:
Lipids or fats (52%), almost all of them consisting of unsaturated fatty acids, which gives them a highly effective in reducing blood cholesterol level. Among the fat sesame is lecithin, a phospholipid (fat phosphorus) which plays an important role in our body. Is an essential component of nerve tissue, and is also found in blood, semen and bile, and is involved in the sex gland function. Lecithin is a strong emulsifier, which facilitates the dissolution of fat in aqueous medium. One of its functions in the blood, is to maintain dissolved lipids in general and especially cholesterol, thus preventing its deposition in artery walls (atherosclerosis). Sesame is, next to soybean, vegetable richer in lecithin.
Protein (20%) of high biological value, consisting of 15 different amino acids with a high proportion of methionine (essential amino acid).
Vitamins, especially E (tocopherol), the B1 or thiamine (0.1 mg per 100 g), and B2 or riboflavin (0.24 mg per 100 g).
Various minerals and trace elements, especially calcium, phosphorus, iron and magnesium, copper and chromium.
Mucilage to which it owes its mild laxative action.
