- Sesame is an important oilseed crop of the world, India being a major producer. Sesame seed provides a highly stable oil and nutritious protein and meal and is used in confectionery foods. It is also an ingredient in Ayurvedic oils under the Indian System of medicine. Sesame is reported to possess antiaging properties, hypocholesterolemic effect, alleviation of symptoms of alcohol withdrawal, etc. Phytochemical investigation of sesame has revealed the presence of biologically active compounds, namely, lignans and lignan glucosides. Studies have shown that sesamin, the major compound present in sesame, inhibits cholesterol absorption and synthesis in rats. Other compounds such as sesamol and sesaminol are reported to be responsible for the increased stability of sesame oil   .
