Tahini or tahina is made using hulled sesame. It is toasted and ground to make a paste which can be served as a dip or as an ingredient in popular Middle-Eastern dishes such as hummus, baba ganoush, and halawa. Tahini comes from the Arabic word: ṭaḥīniyya طحينية. Taḥana طحن which means “to grind”, while in some dialects it means “flour”. Tahini has been mentioned in Arab cookbooks from as early as the 13th century, such as the Hummus recipe in the Kitab Wasf al-Atima al-Mutada.
Our Tahina is a synergy of traditional Middle Eastern preparation and cutting edge European technology. This results in a rich, smooth and enticing Tahina with its delicate nutty flavour and just the right hint of sweetness. You will get all the legendary nutritional wealth of sesame seeds in this wonderfully creamy delicacy. Tahina is a better alternative to nut butter in terms of high nutrition and tastes great as a simple yet flavorful salad dressing. This humble dish has gained fame worldwide and is added in various sauces, frostings, cookies and other baked goods.
