Did you know tahini is one of the best sources of calcium out there?!
Tahini is made from sesame seeds that are soaked in water and then crushed to separate the bran from the kernels. It has so many wonderful health benefits including being high in unsaturated fat, full of vitamins and minerals and even helps maintain healthy skin and muscle tone.
Tahini made from unhulled sesame seeds is more nutrient-rich than tahini made from hulled seeds and is sometimes called sesame butter.
