Tahini is full of antioxidants, including the lignan sesamin. In animal studies, sesamin has exhibited numerous health benefits. Yet, more research in humans is needed.

Tahini contains more protein than milk and most nuts. It’s a rich source of B vitamins that boost energy and brain function, vitamin E, which is protective against heart disease and stroke, and important minerals, such as magnesium, iron and calcium.

Tahini is relatively low in calories but high in fibre, protein and a variety of essential vitamins and minerals which are good for UR overall health.

Tahini can be used as a spread, dip, or salad dressing. It can also be mixed into baked goods to add a unique nutty flavour.

Canola oil is rich in good fats and can help in reducing heart disease risk when used instead of saturated fats by reducing LDL cholesterol in the blood. Scientific research also suggests that canola oil can have positive effects on several chronic health concerns like heart disease, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
