Processing and Cooking of sesame seeds will always change its nutritional value.

The calcium is most prevalent in the hulls so removing the seeds hulls from the sesame seed calcium levels decreases aprox 60 percent. However, when the seed is crushed, as in tahini or sesame butter, its nutrients are more easily digested. When left whole, the seeds do not break down as well during digestion. Also toasting or roasting sesame seeds change its nutritional values. Calcium levels increase when the seeds are toasted.

Once the seeds are hulled should then be stored in the refrigerator or freezer because hulled sesame seeds are more prone to rancidity. Kept in refregerator, sesame seeds can be kept for six months or frozen up to one year.
