Cawari Tahini (sesame paste) is made from 100% Organic Sesame Seeds and is slowly ground by stone to give a very smooth and creamy texture.
Sesame seeds contain the unique lignans sesamin and sesamol, which have been shown to lower cholesterol. Nutrition Research published a study in which subjects consumed 1.5 ounces of tahini a day. After 4 weeks, the subjects' average total cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol decreased by 6.4% and 9.5%, respectively. Subjects were then asked to return to their normal diets without tahini. Four weeks later their cholesterol levels returned to their original level.
