Our Organic Unhulled White Tahini, by Pacific Organics, is a delicious and smooth paste 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. Organic unhulled tahini is slightly stronger in flavour than its hulled cousin. 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, toast spread, and sauce for meat-free dishes.
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 our diet. Tahini is high in dietary fibre 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.
