Tahini (sesame seed butter)

A creamy paste made from hulled (roasted or unroasted) ground sesame seeds. This high protein food is a popular ingredient in Middle Eastern cooking imparting its flavor to Hummus Halvah and Baba Ghanoush. Contrary to popular belief it is not a good source of calcium as most of this mineral is bound up with oxalic acid in the hull.
