Organic tahini without salt/Økologisk tahin uden salt/芝麻酱[zhī má jiàng]

For babies from 8 months.

1. Add ½ to 1 teaspoon into porridge, cereals, oatmeal, omelettes, pancakes, waffles or yogurt for baby (and family).

2. Spread it on baby's bread, instead of using butter.

Nutritional Value:
Tahini is a super healthy spread. It is high in calcium, protein, and the healthy fat that baby needs for proper development, especially brain development.

Additional Information:
Tahini originates in ancient Persia (Iran), under the name ardeh (ارده) 'holy food'. Tahini is from an Arabic loanword to English. Tahini basically means sesame seed paste/butter, and it is made from ground sesame seeds. It is similar to the Japanese sesame paste/sauce used when eating sabu sabu. The Chinese uses sesame oil as seasoning in their porridge and cooking as well as sesame paste in their desert "tangyuan". Tahini-based sauces are common in Arab and Israeli restaurants as a side dish or as a garnish.

Tahini is a very easy food to add into baby's porridge and yogurt.

Tips for adults:
Add tahini to your salad dressing. It tastes yummy. See recipe link here:
