10 REASONS TO EAT TAHINI
1. Tahini is rich in the lignans sesamin and sesamol which appear to lower cholesterol.
2. Contains monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that help lower cholesterol and also reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
3. It is a good source of calcium and magnesium, which naturally lowers blood pressure.
4. It appears to be protective against certain hormone-dependent types of cancer.
5. Contributes to bone health due to the high magnesium content.
6. Helps prevent and manage diabetes mellitus.
7. Their high fiber content makes it a valuable helper for better digestive function.
8. It is rich in copper which is necessary for the uptake of iron, the main component of hemoglobin. Thus, we have better circulation and better functioning of the various organs of the body.
9. Its significant contribution to the health of the skin and hair as it contains significant amounts of zinc.
10. Gives incredible energy!!!
It is a particularly fine nutritional choice, which while it may... cost a little more in terms of calories, is, however, probably one of the most beneficial foods for the good health of our body.
HOW IT IS PRODUCED:
Tahini is a completely natural product, derived from highly selected sesame seeds. These seeds are then dried and then mashed, creating a fatty cream, the tahini we all know.
Its name comes from the Turkish language, where it literally means "sesame pulp".
It is a nutritional treasure as tahini contains many nutrients, valuable for human health.
More specifically, it is rich in proteins, vitamins (E, B1, B2, niacin, etc.), amino acids and carbohydrates.
Rarely does a single food manage to combine all these ingredients, which are necessary for the good functioning of the body and for this reason, many consider tahini to be a super-food.
Tahini is also rich in calcium phosphorus and magnesium.

See ways of use and recipes from Akis Petretzikis on the tab: Ways of use

High value protein?
It is a food that can contribute to the total daily intake of protein, even by people who avoid the consumption of animal foods (e.g. vegetarians).
Fiber and "good" fatty acids
In addition to proteins, tahini offers the body a good amount of fiber, which is essential for the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal system, as well as good quality fatty acids. Specifically, tahini consists of approximately 50% fat, of which only 7% are saturated (bad fats that burden the cardiovascular system) and the remaining 43% is divided into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.
Almost 100% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids found in tahini are an ω6 fatty acid, linoleic, which is classified as an essential fatty acid. This means that the body cannot synthesize it on its own and only obtains it through the diet. According to studies, consumption of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids can reduce cholesterol levels in the body as well as the risk of heart disease and stroke. We should also emphasize that tahini does not contain any cholesterol.
Micronutrients
Regarding micronutrients, that is, vitamins, trace elements and minerals, tahini is rich in calcium, magnesium and phosphorus, ingredients that contribute to bone health and the proper functioning of the nervous and muscular system. Also, tahini has a good content of iron, potassium and zinc, which contribute to strengthening the immune system, mental well-being and reducing fatigue.
The selenium contained in tahini has a strong antioxidant effect and contributes to maintaining the good condition of the hair and nails, while finally the copper also contributes to the good functioning of the nervous system and the absorption of iron.
What you should watch out for
Due to the low content of tahini in simple sugars as well as its relatively low glycemic index, it is a food suitable for consumption by people with diabetes. On the other hand, because of its high caloric output (about 90 calories per tablespoon), we should be careful about the amount we consume, especially if we are on a weight loss program.
Tahini: Effects on health
Heart health
Tahini may contribute to good heart health due to various components. First, as mentioned earlier, tahini is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help to both lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. In addition, tahini is rich in lignans (sesaminol and sesamin), substances that have been extensively studied in recent years for their antioxidant properties and their involvement in the good functioning of the heart.
In particular, lignans seem to help reduce cholesterol levels, protect LDL-cholesterol from oxidation and, by extension, contribute to the reduction of atherosclerotic plaque formation. Recent studies link the action of lignans to the regulation of blood pressure. Calcium and magnesium, components which are naturally contained in tahini, contribute to the regulation of blood pressure.
Bone health
Due to tahini's high content of magnesium and calcium, its consumption may contribute to healthier bones and teeth as well as reducing the risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. The latter also contributes to the existence of lignans in tahini, which, after menopause and the corresponding decrease in estrogen levels in the female body, act as weak estrogens, helping to strengthen bones and protecting to a certain extent from osteoporosis.
Arthritis
Recently, a new research, this time in humans and not in experimental animals, studied the effect that the consumption of sesame seeds can have on the symptoms and especially the pain that people with knee osteoarthritis can experience. The results of the study were groundbreaking, as it showed that in the group of people who consumed sesame seeds, pain levels decreased from 9 to 3.5 points, while in the group of people under medication the levels decreased to only 7 points.

TRANSLATION:

In our country, tahini is mainly used as a spread on bread, either alone or in combination with honey or chocolate.
In specific proportions, you can mix it with couverture chocolate, honey and orange juice and make a homemade chocolate praline, with which children, and not only, will go crazy.
It is the main ingredient of the halva that we ritually consume on Clean Monday but also during every fasting period.
Tahini can also be combined wonderfully with other flavors besides sweet, such as lemon, garlic, pepper, legumes and as a salad dressing. It is a key component of hummus, tahino soup, fasting walnut pie and many other preparations of both cooking and confectionery.
