Tahini is a made from ground sesame seeds. It is traditionally used in Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
And ours is made the old fashioned way. We use the very best NON GMO, organic, water hulled sesame seeds. You use this once and you WILL be hooked.
Traditionally, Tahini is made from sesame seeds that are soaked in water and then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels.
The crushed seeds are soaked in salt water, causing the bran to sink. The floating kernels are skimmed off the surface, toasted, and ground to produce an oily paste.
Tahini can be used to replace common dips as it is much healthier than many high sodium dips on shelves. Tahini is a source of the healthy fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 and because of Tahini's high levels of calcium and protein make it a useful addition to vegetarian and vegan diets.
Compared to peanut butter, Tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats.
You can add spices to make it a dip or use it as an ingredient in dishes. Several classic dishes use Tahini such as Beef Shwarma, Samak bi Tahini (a fish based dish), and it is also classically used on falafels!
NOTICE: Oil separation occurs naturally in our organic Tahini because we don't use any additives to keep the oil separating from the sesame seed paste. As a result, this product requires stirring prior to use. Do NOT drain off the natural oil on top.
