Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. It’s extremely versatile as it can be used in cooking sweet and savory dishes. Even better, it’s packed with essential vitamins and minerals!

There are two main types of tahini: hulled and unhulled. Unhulled tahini is best as it’s made from the whole sesame seed, leaving its nutritional value intact. Hulled tahini is stripped of many of its nutrients.
10 health benefits of tahini:
  1. It’s rich in minerals such as phosphorus, lecithin, magnesium, potassium and iron.
  2. It’s a good source of Methionine, which aids in liver detoxification.
  3. It’s one of the best sources of calcium you can find.
  4. It’s high in vitamin E and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15.
  5. Helps to promote healthy cell growth.
  6. Prevents anemia.
  7. Helps to maintain healthy skin and muscle tone.
  8. It has 20% complete protein, making it a higher protein source than most nuts.
  9. It’s easy for your body to digest because of its high alkaline mineral content, which is great for assisting in weight loss.
  10. It is high in unsaturated fat (good fat!)
