The ultimate pantry staple is here. Used by chefs for centuries, tahini is a seed butter in kitchens worldwide. Our bio-activated tahini is made using an ancient recipe, giving it a unique crush texture rich in flavour. It’s smooth but with a bite. So are you ready to make your most tasty hummus yet?
Ethically sourcing fresh, living raw, organic and hulled sesame seeds is the first step in crafting Sesame Crush. Next, we carefully bake the sesame seeds to increase their digestibility and nutrient availability. Heat breaks down anti-nutrients such as protease inhibitors (protein blockers), lectins, and goitrogens. Did you know that baking leads to a 10% higher protein digestibility score and a 50% reduction in lectins vs raw sesame seeds?
Lastly, we cold-mill baked sesame seeds to make our organic hulled tahini. The temperatures never exceed 45ºC. This preserves the nutrients and creates our signature ‘crush’. A hybrid texture that delights the senses and feeds your microbiome.
Sesame seeds are rich in plant lignans such as sesamin, sesamolin, and sesamol. Sesamol is only present when baking sesame and has the highest antioxidant activity. Each of these has cardioprotective, neuroprotective and anti-cancer properties.
Sesame Crush has so many uses in the kitchen. Try using it to make a simple miso and tahini dressing, hummus, or halva, or stuff it in a date and devour, yum!
