They are not nuts but truly seeds. There is lots of info on Wikipedia. They have been used in cooking as far back as King Tut. I have never heard of lots of people being allergic to them but I suppose anything is possible

They are seeds for sure, and people can be allergic to seeds, just as easily as anything else.

Whatever they are, my sister is definitely allergic to sesame seeds and sesame oil. She also has allergies to eggs, chicken and nuts.
