Most of the calcium is in the hulls, and probably other nutrients as well, so sesame seeds with the hulls still on will be more nutrient-dense. The hulls are edible, not like some other seeds.
I wish there was a different term, "hulled" or "unhulled" is confusing, because if you use hull as a noun, then hulled means a seed with the hull still on and unhulled means the hull is removed, but if you use hull as a verb, as in the action of removing a hull, then hulled means removed and unhulled means intact. But hull on is more nutritious for sesame seeds.
There is no secret ingredient.
