We begin with raw, organic, hulled sesame seeds, then stone-grind them in small batches at low temperatures to preserve all of their vital nutrients. We use the Gujarat variety from India as they are considered the best quality sesame available. Try a jar and experience the difference for yourself!

About Tahini:

Historical Background: Benniseeds, as sesame seeds are called in the Bantu dialect of Africa, are thought to bring good luck. Perhaps luck, along with their health benefits, have made sesame seeds such a popular commodity in so many cultures. These seeds were thought to have first originated in India and were mentioned in early Hindu legends. In these legends, tales are told in which sesame seeds represent a symbol of immortality. From India, sesame seeds were introduced throughout the Middle East, Africa and Asia. The ancient Egyptians used the oil for ritual purification. The Middle Easterners dedicated themselves to crafting sesame paste, a.k.a. Tahini, and the Africans delighted in adding the seeds to a variety of recipes. Today, Vivapura's truly hand-crafted traditional Tahini is a staple for any contemporary healthy kitchen.

A Cholesterol-Friendly Food: Sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers called lignans, and have been shown to help maintain healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels in humans.

    Best tahini I ever bought. The quality is evident in home-made hummus. Not going back to store brands.

    5 of 5 prompt shipping November 18, 2019
    Reviewer: Marcia Lucas from Berryville, AR United States  
    The tahini seems to be a quality product-(I've only made a salad dressing with it so far ) It's nice that it's in glass jars. The price is more reasonable than other organic, raw tahini on the market. I'm very pleased with the prompt shipping.
