What’s in the jar? 100% raw, organic sesame seeds, stone-ground to creamy perfection. Beloved in Middle Eastern cooking for its creamy texture and nutty flavor, our Tahini is as versatile as it is nutritious. Use it in classics like hummus, baba ghanoush and falafel, drizzle it on toast, ice cream, and veggies, fold it into cakes and raw treats, and more!
Sesame seeds are an excellent source of copper, calcium, iron, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, molybdenum, and selenium. They’re also a good source of fiber. Sesame seeds contain more cholesterol-lowering phytosterols than any other nut or seed. They even have their own unique antioxidants, sesamin and sesamolin, which lower blood pressure.
Our Better Than Roasted (BTR) sprouting process maximizes the bioavailability of essential vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in our sesame seeds. It also removes bitterness and concentrates flavor, yielding a sweeter, more easily digestible, and more flavorful seed. Read more about our BTR process HERE.
We stone-grind our sesame seeds slowly at low temperatures for the smoothest, most nutritious butter possible-- after all, that’s how tahini was first made. Read more about the benefits of stone-grinding HERE.
FUN FACT! Think beyond hummus-- tahini has been used for centuries in Middle Eastern, European, North African, Cantonese, and Japanese cuisine to make dishes from date-sesame candy to spicy dan dan noodles. Tahini: something that Israel and Palestine agree on.
