The processing operations for hulled sesame seeds include receipt of natural sesame seeds, cleaning, peeling, drying, sorting, bagging, stitching and dispatch.
There are sieves, magnets, de-stoners, validated driers (CCP) and metal detectors (CCP), which remove foreign materials from the seeds during processing thereby making the product safe for consumption.
They are commonly added to salads, as a topping for bread and grain products, crackers, sushi, cakes, soups, and even used for breading fish and meat. Additionally, sesame oil, derived from the seeds, is a rich source of nutrients with both laxative and emollient properties.
The seeds themselves are very small, only 3-4mm long and 2mm wide, yet 3.85 million metric tons are produced every year. The seeds are initially found in a black hull inside a pod. Once they are removed, they must be stripped of their shells. They come in a wide variety of colors, depending on the variety or strain of the sesame plant.
