Organic Sesame Tahini
Delicious and smooth Organic Sesame Tahini. Tasty on a sandwich or used as a dip for vegetables.
Tastes and Uses
Tahini is made from roasted sesame seeds that are ground to create a creamy and oily paste. Tahini has a distinct roasted sesame taste that is not sweet, unlike other nut butters. The slightly bitter taste makes it a unique complement to sweet desserts like halvah candy. Tahini is commonly used in Middle Eastern cuisine, and is an essential ingredient in recipes like hummus and baba ghanoush. It also makes an excellent vegetable dip, salad dressing, and sauce for meat dishes.
For Your Health
Tahini is naturally rich in protein and calcium, making it a great option for vegan and vegetarian diets. It’s an excellent source of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids, which our bodies do not produce naturally and must consume through food. Tahini is high in dietary fiber and nutrients that support the immune system, like zinc and iron. It also contains the mineral copper, which has anti-inflammatory properties and supports the production of oxygen-rich red blood cells.
I love this because it tastes great in recipes and is very healthy. Someone tipped me off about sitting the jar in hot water until Tahini is easily removed from jar, then running through my food processor until it's creamy! Works great! Now, I can easily use it in lots of recipes.Suzanne, Sun City, CA
It seems like extra oil was added. Tastes ok but very runny.Andrea, Round Lake, NY
I have ordered this item quite a few times from Nuts.Com. Earlier orders rate 5 stars, but the last 2 orders appear to be diluted with oil to the point the stuff just pours. I expect some oil, usually found at the top, but the last 2 jars appeared to have oil homogeneously distributed throughout the mix. I am guessing that the butter was prepared in a large container and then distributed without regard to how much oil went into jars. I will look to another supplier of the butter.Gene, Canyon, TX
Love that it’s organic, with only one ingredient in organic sesame seeds, which are nutritious, and tastes delicious. I already made great hummus with it.Harold, New York, NY
