EDEN Garlic Gomasio sesame salt is the original EDEN Gomasio of whole roasted organically grown tan sesame seeds ground with EDEN sea salt.

The seeds are dry roasted releasing their oil then slowly ground with oven roasted EDEN Sea Salt and Eden selected organic garlic powder.
Gomasio is traditional sesame salt used for centuries in Japan. Goma means sesame, and shio means salt. In Eastern cultures raw salt was rarely used on food. Condiments such as gomasio were used at the table. When hot sesame is ground with salt the seed's oil coats and melts the salt, melding and mellowing it for full flavor with less salt consumption.
EDEN Gomasio sesame salt is ideal on whole grains and pasta, sprinkled on salads and vegetables, on popcorn and corn on the cob in place of salt. Use it in salad dressings and marinades.
