10 reasons to eat tahini
Tahini is rich in sesame lignans and sesamol which seem to lower cholesterol.

It contains monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that help lower cholesterol and also reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke.
It is a good source of calcium and magnesium, which lower blood pressure naturally.
It seems to have a protective effect on some hormone-dependent types of cancer.
Contributes to bone health due to its high magnesium content.
In clinical studies of arthritis it has been found that tahini improves pain and has no side effects of the drug administered in these cases.
Helps prevent and manage diabetes.
Their high fiber content makes it a valuable aid for better digestive function.
It is rich in copper which is necessary for the intake of iron, a key component of hemoglobin. Thus, we have better circulation and better functioning of the various organs of the body.
Its contribution to the health of the skin and hair as it contains significant amounts of zinc.
This is a very fine food choice, which while it may cost a little more in calories, however, is probably one of the most beneficial foods for the good health of our body.

Tahini is a completely natural product, derived from highly selected sesame seeds. These seeds are then dried and then mashed, creating a greasy 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 components, which are necessary for the proper functioning of the body and for For this reason, many consider tahini to be a superfood, where it benefits: tahini is rich in calcium phosphorus and magnesium.

See ways of use and recipes by Akis Petretzikis in the tab: How to use

High value protein?
It is a food that can contribute to the overall daily intake of protein, even by people who avoid eating animal foods (eg vegetarians).

Fiber and "good" fatty acids
In addition to protein, tahini provides the body with a good amount of fiber, which is essential for the proper functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, as well as good quality fatty acids. Specifically, tahini consists of about 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 omega-6 fatty acid, linoleic acid, which is classified as an essential fatty acid. This means that the body can not synthesize it on its own and it is supplied only through diet. Studies show that consuming monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids can lower cholesterol levels in the body as well as the risk of heart disease and stroke. It should also be noted that tahini does not contain any cholesterol.

Micronutrients
Regarding the micronutrients, ie 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 systems. Also, tahini has a good content of iron, potassium and zinc, which help strengthen the immune system, mental well-being and reduce fatigue.

The selenium contained in tahini has a strong antioxidant effect and helps maintain the good condition of hair and nails, while copper also contributes to the proper functioning of the nervous system and the absorption of iron.

What to 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, due to its high caloric yield (about 90 calories per tablespoon), we should be careful about the amount we consume, especially if we are on a weight loss program.

Tahini: Health effects
Heart health
Tahini can contribute to good heart health due to its various components. Initially, as mentioned earlier, tahini is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol as well as 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 participation in the proper functioning of the heart.

In particular, lignans appear to help lower cholesterol levels, protect LDL-cholesterol from oxidation, and thus help reduce the formation of atherosclerotic plaque. Recent studies have linked the action of lignans to the regulation of blood pressure. Calcium and magnesium, which are naturally contained in tahini, also help regulate blood pressure.

Bone health
Due to the high content of magnesium and calcium in tahini, its consumption can contribute to healthier bones and teeth as well as reduce the risk of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Contributing to the latter is the presence of tahini lignans, which, after menopause and the corresponding reduction of estrogen levels in the female body, act as weak estrogens, helping to strengthen bones and protect to some extent from osteoporosis.

Arthritis
Recently, a new study, this time in humans rather than animals, studied the effect that consuming sesame seeds can have on the symptoms and especially on the pain that people with osteoarthritis of the knee may experience. The results of the study were subversive, as it showed that in the group of people consuming sesame seeds the pain levels decreased from 9 to 3.5 points, while in the group of people on medication the levels decreased to only 7 points.

In our country, tahini is mainly used for spreading on bread, either alone or in combination with honey or chocolate. In certain 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 halva that we traditionally consume on Shrove Monday and in every period of fasting. Tahini can also be perfectly combined with other flavors besides sweets, such as lemon, garlic, pepper, legumes and as a salad dressing. It is a basic ingredient of hummus but also of tahini soup, fasting walnut pie and many other preparations of both cooking and confectionery.
