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 now use the Ethiopian Humare variety sesame seeds to produce a Raw Tahini paste that is organic, sweeter, and creamier than ever before. 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.
Rich in Essential Minerals & Vitamins: An excellent source of manganese and copper. Also rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. Contains 25% protein and rich in methionine and tryptophan.
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.
