There’s an old English saying that goes, ‘Mighty oaks from little acorns grow’. It feels quite appropriate to us here at SesamMe, where we take a simple seed and turn it into something extraordinary: a life-changing business opportunity.
Sesame seeds may not look like much, but overlook this kernel at your peril! They are among the oldest seeds to have been used in condiments, and they have been widely eaten, produced and cultivated across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas for many, many centuries.
And no wonder, with their distinctive nutty, sweet taste which can be used in so many different ways. For us, we’re at the beginning of an exciting journey of evolution in our products; SesamMe was established through selling halva, but we have a number of new tasty treats launching in coming weeks. We can’t say too much yet, but rest assured that Britain’s taste buds are about to enjoy a whole lot more of those little seeds which are the foundations of our success!
Health benefits recognised worldwide
It’s not just about the flavour though – sesame seeds have some serious benefits that have long been enjoyed by cultures from the Middle East to South America. These seeds are the only natural home of sesamin, sesaminol and sesamolinol, which have what’s been described as a “remarkable antioxidant function” by the International Dipasa Group. The company also cites several research studies highlighting the potential positive effect of sesame on cholesterol levels.
Similarly, sesame oil has been used for thousands of years for its healing and cosmetic qualities, with India and South America particularly fond of its benefits. Used in skin care and health care, this oil is also naturally anti-viral and anti-bacterial for humans.
Meanwhile, science links our little seed with benefits ranging from helping with diabetes, depression and sleep disorders, through to lowering blood pressure, reducing stress and improving the health of our heart.
Sesame seeds are rich in vitamin E, have more calcium than milk or cheese, are packed with minerals such as magnesium and are high in fibre. All in all, these little guys pack quite a punch when it comes to your health and wellbeing.
The enormous advantages of sesame seeds are there for all to see – and in SesamMe, you have the opportunity to own and run your own business that shares these magical qualities with thousands of people every month.
Because not only will your customers enjoy all of these benefits; they’ll also love the fact that our halva is suitable for vegans, gluten-free and some flavours are even sugar-free. We know how much they care about those things, because they tell us every day in our busy kiosks.
Acorns may become mighty oaks, but our sesame seeds can become something much more interesting – your future.
