Sesame is a unique and beneficial food ingredient. Consumption of whole or grind seeds date back to the ancient times. Sesame was so precious that ancient Assyrians were dealing their loans in silver or sesame seed. Herodotus mentions that the Babylonians knew sesame cultivation (1750AC) as well. In ancient Greece sesame was used not only as food but also in the production of pharmaceutical drugs. Hippocrates praises its high dietary value, while Galinos uses it as a pharmaceutical drug and Hippofantis uses sesame oil for face rubbing aiming to reduce freckles.
Sesame is very rich in vitamin E and antioxidant properties (Lignans) that provide an anti-aging effect, reduce cholesterol levels in blood, contribute to the treatment of hypertasis, and are necessary for the proper operation of the immune system.
