While The Mighty Sesame Company is a young one, we’ve got more than 30 years of sesame expertise behind us. Our team has spent their careers grading, tasting, buying and creating with sesame. We’re a more than a little passionate about all things sesame, and the seed itself has taught us that mighty results can grow up from humble beginnings.
It takes an expert to create a truly premium product. Our ‘sesameliers’ oversee the delicate and complex process of transforming raw, fair-trade sesame seeds into our delicious products. For over 30 years, the process from the seed cultivation to creating our sesame-based foods has been managed with expertise, refined knowledge and innovation. The palate of an experienced sesamilier can recognize the variety, production method, and suggest improvements to a recipe simply by taste. We constantly strive to innovate our process to benefit your superfood experience.
Producing premium sesame is as complex as producing fine wine. Change of seasons, soil types and sesame varieties all greatly affect the nutrient composition, texture and flavor of the mighty seed. We carefully manage the growing and harvesting of our seeds, grinding at a low temp to achieve world class standards. Our care in choosing seed varieties, storage method, screening, meticulous peeling and roasting is combined with our exclusive grinding process and innovative recipes to create a nutritional and flavorful sesame experience of artisanal quality.
We source sesame from the most reputed growing region in the world, Ethiopia, and trade sustainably with producers to ensure fair wages for farmers in a win-win exchange for the world’s mighty finest sesame.
