White sesame seeds are the hulled seeds obtained from the flowering plant Sesamum. They are small, oval shaped flat seeds. They are whitish-cream colour as their light brown outer covering or shell is removed in the hulling process. White sesame seeds are quite common in western and middle eastern. They are considered as an ingredient in dishes and are also used in oil form.
Purchase white sesame seeds in small quantities and use them quickly as they have high oil content that will make them rancid quickly. Also make sure there is no moisture in the seeds. Go for clean seeds, free from dust and debris. Check for the "use-by" date on the packaging of white sesame seeds.
Over consumption of sesame seeds can cause irregular bowel movements and colon irritation.(2)
