WHY YOU’LL LOVE THIS TAHINI
Pepperwood's Organic Whole Sesame Butter is unique on the market. Made from 100% pure whole sesame seeds, it is rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. Our unhulled Sesame Butter contains 5X more Calcium and 2X more Iron than regular hulled tahini, making it one of the world's most nutritious superfoods.
The majority of Tahinis are made from ''hulled'' sesame seeds, meaning the shell is separated from the kernels resulting in a smoother finished product (just like white vs. whole grains). Commercial hulling of the sesame seed removes many of its inherent benefits since a majority of the nutrients are found in the shell. Pepperwood's unhulled sesame butter is unrivaled. Our meticulous stone ground process produces a uniquely finished product that tastes amazing while retaining all the goodness this super seed has to offer.
Many companies use metal machines for the grinding process, which harms the texture and nutritional benefits of this potent seed. At Pepperwood, only the good old stone grinding technique is used which naturally preserves the sesame’s exceptional nutritional benefits, rich flavor and smooth texture.
NO ADDED SALT
The predominant method used in the cleansing process is to soak the sesame seeds in salt water which also speeds up production - but at the same time dehydrates the seed. This method produces a finished product which has a thicker texture and salty taste.
At Pepperwood, we cleanse the sesame seeds without using any salt in the process giving our Sesame butter a sweet-nutty flavor and a smooth, creamy texture.
