Tahini - oriental indulgence, so versatile and delicious


Well-tried recipes with tahini butter from Rapunzel's recipe collection
[01/21]  Rapunzel would be unfathomable without nut butters. They are integral components of the product range since the very beginning of Rapunzel. For the preparation of valuable tahini, we have always used sesame from controlled oranic cultivation. Rapunzel has been filling the resulting sesame butter into jars in the Allgäu since its very beginning with a lot of love and tender care. 
How is tahini made?

Original Rapunzel Tahini is made in Legau. Traditional tahini consists of 50% peeled and 50% unpeeled sesame. The used sesame seeds are freshly roasted and ground at Rapunzel headquarters.

Rapunzel "Tahini white" is made with 100% peeled sesame. The sesame peels are blanched with water vapor and the seeds are subsequently ground.
White sesame butter is made only with peeled sesame seeds where the seed pods have been removed. White Tahini therefore has a milder taste. White Tahini, however, has only small calcium concentrations and less vitamin B1 and B6.

What exactly is tahini?


Tahini – fine butter made from sesame seeds - has its origin in the Oriental, the African and the Asian cuisine. It is used to refine many dishes such as humus or Baba Ganoush.

Tahini is available as white or brown tahini. The coloration depends on whether the sesame seed pods have been removed during processing or if they were ground together with the sesame seeds.  

Tahini has a fine, savory flavor with a slight bitter note. White tahini is milder while the brown variation has a roasty flavor.  

The good qualities of sesame seeds

Sesame seeds – the basic ingredients of tahini – are rich in vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and iron. Since our organism does not take up plant-based iron very well, tahini should always be consumed together with vitamin C containing foods. A squirt of lemon - the traditional ingredient for humus - therefore supports the uptake of iron. 
Additionally, sesame seeds also contain very healthy lipids that consist of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids - with approximately similar concentrations of oleic acid and linolenic acid. These two fatty acids are known for keeping cholesterol and general blood lipids in check.  
Calcium is responsible for the stability and hardness of the bones. It activates enzymes and supports muscular activity.
Magnesium is the foundation for healthy bones and teeths. In its function as activator of more than 300 enzymes, magnesium participates in the transformation of nutritional energy to chemical energy and in the utilization of proteins and fats. Moreover, magnesium also supports muscular and mental work.
 
Iron is a component of red blood cells that are important for the transport of oxygen in the body. It participates in many immune and metabolic functions. 
Vitamin B6 strengthens the body's immune response and participates in the formation of red blood cells. Vitamin B6 also controls cell division. 

Recipes with tahini

Tahini is perfect as bread spread or as vegan refinement for vegetable dishes, as a base for salad dressings, dips, tangy sauces and for the Asian cuisine. Together with chickpeas, garlic and lemon juice, tahini is the ideal ingredient for homemade humus.
