Unhulled Tahini is a sesame seed paste dark in colour and with a richer sesame taste. Sesame seeds are rich in vitamins and minerals, protein, calcium, and iron. In Hindu mythology the god Yama blessed the sesame seed and it has since become regarded throughout the East as a symbol of immortality. Unhulled Tahini is darker in colour and rich in flavour than hulled Tahini. A must if you like a rich sesame flavour.
