History

Sesame is the oldest oilseed crop known to humanity.

Archaeological remnants suggest sesame was first domesticated in the Indian subcontinent dating to 5500 years ago. There are claims that suggest trading of sesame between Mesopotamia and the Indian subcontinent occurred by 2000 BC. It is possible that the Indus Valley Civilization exported sesame oil to Mesopotamia.

Excavations of King Tutankhamen uncovered baskets of sesame among other grave goods, suggesting that sesame was present
in Egypt by 1350 BC.

Archeological reports indicate that sesame was grown and pressed to extract oil at least 2750 years ago in the empire of Urartu.
