Move over hummus — tahini, the smooth sesame paste that’s so essential to traditional Middle Eastern hummus, is getting its time to shine. Today tahini is showing up in sandwiches, baked goods, desserts, and even cocktails.
It was only a matter of time before tahini snack bars made an appearance. The healthy-minded people at Absolutely Gluten Free jumped in and made a splash with three all-natural varieties — pistachio, cocoa nibs, and vanilla — each at only 100 calories per bar.
These addictive treats are now being rebranded under the Mighty Sesame brand name. The packaging is new, but Mighty Sesame promises the same premium-quality product inside. All three varieties of grab-and-go TahiniBars® remain gluten- and dairy-free, vegan, kosher, and delicious. (MSRP: $3.99–$4.89 per box of six individually wrapped 0.63-oz. bars.) They are available at Walmart stores nationwide, Meijer, and HEB as well as other independent food stores.
Tahini is a superfood. Loaded with protein, vitamins, and minerals, it’s a great alternative for those with nut allergies and provides a boost of energy. The Mighty Sesame Company’s versatile tahini, sold in convenient squeeze bottles, is at home in savory and sweet dishes alike. The sesame experts at Mighty Sesame suggest using it in marinades, dips, desserts, as a sandwich spread, on salads, in soups, and drizzled over meat, fish, and falafel. Of course, it’s also a perfect add-in to homemade hummus.
Creamy and decadent, Mighty Sesame Co. organic, squeezable, and ready-to-use tahini is made from 100% slow-roasted sesame seeds to be enjoyed 100% guilt-free: it’s organic, vegan, gluten- and dairy-free, kosher, and halal. Tahini is the perfect addition to add flavor to any diet with just one ingredient that delivers plant- based protein and is Keto-friendly. (MSRP $4.99 per 10.9-oz. bottle.)
Whole Seed Mighty Sesame Co. Creamy & Squeezable Tahini is made from unhulled sesame seeds, which provides more calcium and a rich, delicious, fuller tahini flavor. It’s an excellent source of calcium and is non-dairy, vegan, and still rich, creamy, and ready-to-use straight from the squeezable bottle.
Mighty Sesame TahiniBars® in the six-bar package and Mighty Sesame Co. organic, squeezable, and ready-to-use tahini are distributed by Kayco (Kayco.com), headquartered in Bayonne, New Jersey.
