Whole-grain Tahini is prepared the same way as ordinary Tahini. However, during the grinding process, sesame hulls are added back to the mix, and are ground together with the seeds.
Whole-grain Tahini has a thicker texture, darker in color, and has higher nutritional values than basic Tahini.
It is suitable for use in many dishes, and may be served as a sauce, dip, or a side dish.
Tahini is known for having good nutritional value. Whole-grain Tahini contains an even larger amount of vitamins and minerals, as well as fiber, which assists in proper operation of the digestive system and reduce absorption of cholesterol. It also contains mono-unsaturated acids, which assist in increasing the levels of the “good” cholesterol in the body, thus assisting in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
