What is tahini?

Tahini is made from 100% sesame seeds which have been stone-ground to create a silky-smooth creamy consistency!

How is Sead tahini different to tahini on the supermarket shelf?

Our tahini has a silky-smooth creamy texture and it is lighter in consistency. It also has much less oil separation and bitterness. This is because we slowly stone-grind our sesame seeds on natural stones.
