23 Jun White vs Brown Rice

Brown rice is a whole grain, and white rice is the refined version of that same grain. Each whole grain of rice consists of three parts: the bran, the germ and the endosperm. To create white rice, a milling process removes two of the three parts. “White rice differs from brown rice in that the bran and germ are removed,”. Brown rice is simply whole rice that has not undergone the milling process, so it retains its bran and germ.

25 Apr Black Sesame Seed Health benefits and dishes

Black sesame seeds are small, flat, oily seeds that grow in the fruit pods of the Sesamum indicum plant, which has been cultivated for thousands of years. Sesame seeds grow in a variety of colors, including shades of black, brown, tan, gray, gold, and white. Black sesame seeds are primarily produced in Asia, although they’re quickly gaining popularity around the world. 

Black sesame seeds are rich in nutrients that support optimal health, and regularly eating them may have specific benefits. One reason why black sesame seeds could be so beneficial to health is due to the seeds’ effects on oxidative stress, particularly for people who are living with a chronic disease. In one 8-week mouse study, consuming 0.45–0.9 mL of a black sesame seed extract per pound (1–2 mL per kg) of body weight daily improved insulin resistance, treated oxidative stress in the liver, and appeared to protect against obesity.  Furthermore, some human research has shown that black sesame seeds may help reduce oxidative stress. A study in 30 people found that taking 2.5 grams of black sesame seed capsules per day for 4 weeks significantly decreased levels of malondialdehyde (MDA), one of the most commonly used biomarkers of oxidative stress.

11 Apr Roasted vs Toasted

Roasting or toasting is a typical dry heating food processing operation having different objectives to meet certain specific requirements. A number of food ingredients and products are subjected to dry roasting or toasting without using oil and water. Roasted and toasted sesame seeds are similar in look and taste. The only difference is that toasted sesame seeds are made on the stove, whereas roasted sesame seeds are made in the oven. Roasting the sesame seeds makes the seed plump and intensifies the flavor, which adds a more nutty and smoky taste to your meals.
